Description

A large handmade pottery jar, in an attractive light-orange color, with a narrow, circular base. The thin walls extend to a wide and curved shoulder, and develop into a smaller neck and a flared rim with a downward dip. This type of rim is known as a saddle mouth. Between the rim and the shoulder of the pottery jar is a pair of strap handles.

The pottery jar is from the Siwa culture; a Bronze Age culture in the Gansu province. The Siwa culture flourished from the 14th to the 11th century BC.
