Gift of Edward Perry Warren, Esq., Honorary Degree, 1926
This pomegranate-shaped artifact likely came from a funerary context. The vase’s shape is formed from a hollow clay shell, covered with painted geometric and figural decoration. Images of pomegranates, a symbol of fertility, frequently appear in ancient art, clothing, and jewelry throughout the Near East and Eastern Mediterranean.
