Face-neck vessel fragment. Narrow-necked jug with an unknown body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, one vertical strap handle from the neck to body, and an unknown base. There is a modeled/molded head with nose, eyes, ear spools, mouth, and modeled arms with individual fingers holding the head. The vessel appears to have been smoothed with a rotative movement on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color.
