Footed bird-shaped vessels have been found primarily at burial sites on the southern Korean peninsula, near the Nakdong River. Occurring in pairs, they probably served as funereal ritual vessels and burial objects. Liquid was poured into the vessel through an opening at the back and flowed out through the bird’s tail.
