Neolithic Vessel

$4,000

About

Northern China has a settled history that goes back more than 5,000 years. All along the western reaches of the Yellow River settlements sprung up and some of the first evidence we have is in the form of pottery. This terra cotta vessel was buried for the afterlife and dates to about 1800 BC. It features incised vertical decoration and an attached half-lid.
