The thin-walled bowl in medium to dark-brown clay has a flat bottom and elegantly curved walls decorated on the outside with two incised hands on opposite sides. The outstretched fingers of hands are pointing up. The vessel walls and fingernails are burnished while the hands and bottom are roughened and have a grey color.
