Bowl with Interior Geometric Decoration


Not on view

The geometric decoration on this bowl is also found on pottery from Nubia and represents the ways in which objects and visual ideas from throughout Egypt and Africa made their way to Kharga. The pigment, however, was likely from a local source of red-ochre, which suggest that the bowl was made by a pottery workshop in the Western Desert.
