The speckled markings on this charming vessel suggest a trout, though this abstract fish perhaps swims only in the rivers of the imagination. The people who created such a lively art must have been very attuned to the world around them, to both its subtle wonders and to its larger patterns. Even after all these centuries, a benevolent magic lingers. - (PF.0869)
