Object Detail

A white/creamy ceramic kumete (bowl) in a rough oval shape. Two manaia faces protrude from the proximal ends of the bowl, facing outwards. A birdman/ manu aute (kite) figure also stretches around the edge of the bowl between the manaia with its head above the bowl line. The surface is rough and uses the marks of a scraping tool to create pattern and surface texture
