Chinese Han Dynasty earthenware tomb jar, ca 200 BCE. The manufacture of tomb furniture was important and followed clear criteria. This jar is composed of three earthenware parts put together while still in the leather hard state. The vessel was covered in white slip, and decorative hand painted elements were added to the outer surface. The decoration is murky at best, leaving only the face of an animal, cloud forms, and what may have been architectural lines. It may have originally held food stuff such as millet. (Includes Certificate of Authenticity.)
