"Bible Lands Museum [II]" Bible Lands Museum Tip by FruitLover
Bible Lands Museum, Jerusalem: 4 reviews and 3 photos
In third millenium Iran, the craft of fine painted pottery continued to develop after flourishing in prehistoric times. Large storage vessels decorated with designs of birds with outstretched wings and stylized horned animals on the shoulder were typical. They are found both in the valleys of the central Zagros mountains and in Elam, testifying to links between the highlands and the cultured literate centers in the south.
This painted pottery tradition continued into the second millenium, as can be seen on the small jar displayed here.
