This vessel's exquisite, crisp detail will reward careful viewing. The modeling of the feline pelt on the back is especially delicate and sharp, and each of the squares on the tunic (shirt) carries a tiny dot in the upper corners, as though the squares represent plates of metal or shell attached to fabric. The face is decorated with paint or tattooing, and the headdress supports a curved, blade-shaped form.
