This has survived over 5000 years

This Egyptian vessel has survived for over 5000 years. It is amazing that you can still observe it close up in the Newfields  museum in Indianapolis.

This pot is about 14 inches tall

This artifact is identified in a museum information label as a Nagada II Vessel, titled Flamingos. It is dated 3400-3200 B.C. The pictures of the flamingos and the geometric lines are typical of other pots of the same vintage.

  1. I have picked up perfectly formed flint arrow heads and had the same feeling:
    trying to connect with who ever made it and what they saw & thought while making it. While I look at a flint mound in what is now desert and wonder what that person was like.
