Iron Age II - III
Vessel with cushion-shaped body and two spouts, intended to suggest a human-headed bird. One spout rises vertically from one side of the body; it flares at the rim. On the upper end of the spout, below the rim, are modeled a human face with schematic impressed eyes and ridge nose, and crescent-shaped ears each pierced with two holes. Opposite the vertical spout, a curved tubular spout, suggesting a tail, extends upward. The vessel rests on three stubby feet.
