Rather large red earthenware aquamanile in the shape of a curious animal resembling a piglet. The spout shaped as his round flattened snout, the head with double circled appliqued eyes and pointed ears. The ovoid body surmounted by a tall everted neck leading to a large opening to which a cordoned bent handle is attached. Four legs carefully sculpted support the vessel, where a small curly tail is attached to the back.

Water containers such as this one, with a truncated upright opening are usually associated with the Amlash period and similar examples can be seen in the A.M Sackler Collection of Near Eastern Art in Washington (coll. no. S1987.950). - (LO.923)
