Description

This amusing mini sculpture evokes a simple, round bowl (ca. 3900–3650 B.C.) in The Met collection. With two feet solidly attached to its underside, it is tipped slightly forward as if to offer its contents. During the Predynastic Period, ancient Egyptian potters created a wide variety of ceramic vessels, including this unusual type with supports shaped like human feet. Made from Nile clay, the bowl has a smooth, polished surface, giving it a light sheen. The bowl standing on feet is very similar in form to the Egyptian hieroglyph meaning "to bring."

Not the same as the one on display case. Color and finish seems lighter and nicer than the one I purchased on 4/18/21

Decorative with function; touched with a prehistoric sense of humor.

This footed bowl is not as nice as the ones made years ago. This version seems to have many blemishes and the feet are also different.
