In the ancient world, even the most ordinary object might take on an abstract decorative beauty. This exquisite vessel with a long spout was perhaps used for filling lamps or for pouring ritual oils in religious ceremonies. In profile, it resembles a graceful abstract bird, with long beak and curving neck. This blending of natural forms with practical function is typical of Persian artistry. As we take pleasure in its strong, pure lines, we share our emotions with those who first handled this vessel thousands of years ago. - (FZ.271)
