Catalogue Description: The object is an unevenly shaped bowl made from a low fired ceramicware. The inside of the bowl is covered with white slip upon which has been painted a design in dark red-bown pigment. The design consists of three dancing male figures. The faces of these figures have been left white except for a black masklike band across their eyes. Their heads are decorated with cross hatching; the figures hold staffs. The rim of the bowl has several chips missing. Two drilled holes are also in the rim. There is a blind crack extending from two fragmented sections along the rim. The object was broken into three large sections in the past and repaired. The overall surface is worn.
