Red ware. Body shaped as the head on an animal, probable a Llama; wide jar neck on top. Painted with red band
Wide mouthed vessel with an effigy-zoomorphic body, bulging collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. The vessel is shaped like an animal head (Llama?) with nose, ears, and eyes. The vessel is painted delineating the features of the animal head. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1805."
