Flat base, human squatting figure largely modeled; face on vertical neck with incised headband; arms in high relief on body; handles holding whistle to mouth

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with an effigy-anthropomorphic body, cylindrical neck, flattened rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. There is a modeled human effigy face on the neck with legs and arms on the body holding a whistle to the mouth. The effigy features are highlighted by painted decoration in white and brown. Two circles are painted on the back. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Evidence of usewear includes staining. There is a large shiny black patch on the exterior bottom. The catalogue number is written in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: " 3096."
