BOWL WITH CROCODILES AND GEOMETRIC DESIGN

Identity: Unknown
Material: Brown Clay
Period: Prehistoric
Reign: Unknown


Dimensions:
Height: 11 cm
Diameter: 19.5 cm

This bowl is one among many showing a similar design. It is a white painted, red-polished bowl bearing geometric decoration.

Less common though is the application of modeled figures such as crocodiles. This bowl has a flat rim and a rounded base. Four diagonal bands of interlocking white chevrons separate four modeled figures of painted crocodiles. The interior pattern consists of two checkered triangles separated by a band, which is also checkered, and diminishing towards the center of the bowl.
