Mesopotamian Pouring Vessel replica. This is a reproduction of a 5,000 year old Mesopotamian pouring vessel. Made from resin, measures 6"L x 3.5"W x 1.5"H. The original vessel was unearthed during the joint University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the British Museum excavation at the Mesopotamian city of Ur in the 1920s and early 1930s lead by C.Leonard Woolley. It is in the University of Pennsylvania Museum collection and is made of carved calcite painted with a black pigment. Stone was rare in southern Mesoptamia, supporting the idea that this vessel belonged to a person of means. It was found in the proximity of graves with pottery and seals of the Akkadian period (ca.2350-2150B.C.) and was dated accordingly by Woolley. The carving is of human-headed bull. It is representative of a class of stone bowls whose shapes were derived from half shells. There is speculation by some scholars that these vessels were used as lamps, but it is more likely that they were used as a pouring vessels either in funerary rituals or buried with the dead.
