Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Small figural ceramic container that is shaped like a ram that has a very rounded body, short legs, a short tail, and a small head with curved horns. The exterior of the body is painted in black and white with repeating patterns of black rectangles bisected by a zig-zag line, creating two stepped triangles. The opening of the container is a hole in the top of the ram's head.
