The bold, abstract geometry that decorates this charming vessel seems to convey the lively spirit of the ancient people through whose hands it passed so long ago. We remember that these were individuals who laughed and sang, talked, argued and loved. In appearance they were similar to us, though their vision of the world was vastly different. This pot--which perhaps held ritual oil or wine--links us directly to that ancient world. Our hands rest where other hands did in Biblical times; the energy, the bond, is there to be felt. - (P.0025)
