Large storage jar with gourd design

Artist Unknown, China, Majiayao Culture

This pot has a narrow, cylindrical neck, abruptly giving way to a rounded upper half, tapering gently to a flat bottom, with two small lugs (ring handles) at the waist. Painted decoration is confined to the upper half, perhaps because these pots were set into the earth to keep them upright. The painted designs evoke fish nets and swirling eddies of water.

Each panel of fabric has a different image including, craggy rocks, tree branches against the sky, sunlight reflecting on water and marshland, flames of fire and cloud like formations. Four are black and white images and the three others are color prints.
