This is an earthenware jar ornamented with painted swirl patterns. The base and bottom portion of the jar is painted a reddish-orange, as is the inside of the rim and a small portion of the interior of the jar.The top section, ornamented with decorative black swirls on a white background, is framed on both the top and the bottom with two horizontal rings painted in black. There is an opening in both rings (it is not a complete circle around the jar). This swirling pattern and the negative/positive imagery recalls op-art.
