Despite the loss of most of its blue glaze, this is one of the finest, best-preserved relief-decorated vessels of its era. At least some of the seemingly decorative motifs are religious symbols, and even the swamp scene may be religious in nature. Some of the decoration's elements were current in the minor arts of the preceding Ramesside Period, but others may reflect the revival of even older iconography.
