This vase gains significance because it illustrates the development in ceramic productions during the Nagada II Period. The base color changed from polished red to flat buff and the form becomes slightly convexed towards the bottom with a flat rim and tubular pierced handles. The development of this motif also tended towards a more curvilinear appearance with the addition of new figures such as boats with oars, female dancers and flamingos.
