Predynastic BeakerYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Black-topped pottery was characteristic of the earliest periods of Egyptian civilization. It was fired upside down with the top buried in sand, depriving the clay of oxygen and resulting in the distinct coloration. This beaker was excavated from a grave at Badari, but most likely was used during the owner’s life to hold grain. This example bears an ancient image scratched on the side of a hunting dog attacking an ibex.
Date: 3500-3400 BCE
