One of the most unusualand favoriteobjects in the Metropolitan Museums Egyptian Collection is a red-polished ware bowl with supports shaped like human feet. Although the human feet add a touch of levity to its appearance, they were not created solely as an element of humor. This ceramic form should most likely be read as the three-dimensional hieroglyph for the word wb, meaning pure or clean. Our reproduction is a copy of a bowl from the Predynastic period (ca. 37503550) in Egypt.

Terracotta. For decorative use only. 3 1/2''H; 5 1/4'' diam.
