DescriptionThis jar or bottle is decorated with vertical lines that, combined with the shape of the jar, give it the appearance of a drum. Although pottery drums are present in the Southwest, the opening of this vessel is too small for it to have served as a drum. It probably held water or a mixture of water and other materials for use in rituals.
