Description

with face

Fragment. The fragment has a modeled face on it with ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. It is was originally painted but now only traces of paint remain. 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. Black ink on the bottom reads: "26837."
