About this artwork

In the Final Jomon period, especially in Aomori in northern Honshu, distinctive incised swirl patterns appear on many works. This pot with a spout for liquids, which is recorded as having been unearthed at the town of Nagawa in Aomori, is extremely lightweight, and the decorative patterns were made with a delicate and careful hand. The bottom, in particular, has a beautiful filled-in swirl pattern.
