Description:
Small figure vessel without head

Unknown vessel type with an effigy-anthropomorphic body, no neck/collar, missing rim, and a flat base. The body is shaped like a human body with arms, feet, and a hunchback. The vessel is painted with red, white, and black paint, delineating the features of the anthropomorphic figure. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a scraped finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1210."
