Spouted Vessel


Not on view

The vessel is in the shape of a human head with wide open, staring eyes, a small pug nose, and closed mouth. A lip plug is worn in the lower lip. A handle extends from the forehead to the back of the head. On the right side behind the ear projects a single spout pointing upward. On the sides of the face and back of the head the cream-colored surface is covered with geometric motifs including dots, circles, diamonds and crosses in dark brown and purple.
