Parque Nacional del Este, Dominican Republic
Constricted Bowl with Lugs
Design:The design on the top half of the pot
is not deeply incised. It is possible that the design repeats itself,
however that cannot be determined due to erosion. Yet, since the handles are
symmetrically placed and appear to have been identical, it is believed
that the design was repeated. The incised line drawings on the pot
consist of vertical, parallel lines in a neat repeating fashion. Each
line ends with a punctation. The constriction in the center of the pot
is very acute and may suggest that it was designed to have some type of
rope around the construction.
Size:Height 11.4cm, Greatest Width 14cm
Condition:Most of the pot is intact except for
small percentage of the top portion. Most of the
rim has broken off. Two lug handles are close to the top; one is complete
while the other is eroded. The handles are symmetrically placed.
Collection Date:Prior to August 1996
Comments:The color of the artifact is
significantly different than any other ceramic artifact known to have
been recovered from the Aleta.
