Description
This sturdy simple vessel once held food during the age of David and Solomon. From a pot such as this David may have eaten on the night before he slew Goliath. To the vanished era that created it, it was perhaps an unremarkable pot, notable more for its contents than its beauty. Yet, the passage of time has graced it with qualities it did not originally possess. We wonder whose hands once grasped its handles, and we recognize that it radiates with the energetic glow of those ancient lives. - (P.0648)
