Description:
Painted crudely representing a captive with hands tied behind back and feel crossed.

Face-neck wide mouthed vessel with an effigy-anthropomorphic body, effigy-anthropomorphic collar, missing rim, no handles, and a flat base. The vessel is shaped like a captive sitting cross-legged with his arms behind his back. The figure has modeled ears, eyes, nose, mouth, arms, and legs. There are traces of white, red, and possibly black paint. 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: "1602."
