One Ear Pot with Vertical Lines and Band Design
Pottery Designs from the Qijia culture 齐家文化彩陶

The Qijia culture was first discovered in Qijiaping in Guanhe county, Gansu Province in 1924. The Qijia culture is thought to have thrived from 2183 to 1630 BC during the late Neolithic Period. During this period bronze was being introduced into the culture and supplanting pottery as the mainstay for higher class goods and ceremonial vessels. The designs seen on the pottery changed from earlier cultures in the Gansu region becoming much lighter, more fluid, and in the examples seen here, simpler.
