Vessel with arched handle and decorated with human face excavated from Maeone site

The face on this vessel with an arched handle excavated intact from a house in a large middle-Jomon-period village has upward-slanting eyes and a pursed mouth, conveying a sense of utter innocence. Viewed in another way, it is as if the vessel is being embraced by someone.
