Resource Type:

These sherds are from multiple vessels with almost identical shapes and decorations. Most parts of the vessel are represented, but not complete enough for restoration. Reconstruction by archaeologists indicates that the vessel has a low, bulging belly and a ring-foot. Decoration is carefully executed, with triangular cicada patterns under the rim, dragon motifs on the shoulder, and square patterns on the vessel body.
