A nicely rendered Amlash beige pottery jar, featuring a globular body, rising from a flat base, a short neck and a flaring rim. The vessel is further enriched by delicate decorative register running across the upper body. The decorative motif comprises a well-balanced petal-shaped pattern, rendered alternatively in bright orange, white and ochre pigment. The addition of black pigment to the petals’ borders emphasises the sense of volume of the composition.
Date: Circa 2nd-1st millennium BC
