The pottery vessel of Toudomiya site

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
The pottery vessel of the Toudomiya site of the Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500?2,500 BC) was discovered during a rescue archaeological project stemming from farm road construction in 1968. This pot has a painting that looks like a human body on the surface at the bottom of the vessel. This is the only existing example of painting from the Jomon Period and the earliest painting from the entire Japanese Archipelago.
