Neolithic Era
Geometric Design Pottery Bowl
几何纹彩陶钵    盛食器

This food container is painted with a geometric design. The addition of designs to functional objects tells us that there was leisure time, the capacity for boredom, and a sense of symmetry or completeness. Designs continue around the bowl and repeat the pattern in rows. The bowl was made between 7000 and 5000 years ago and was excavated at Jiangzhai, Lintong.
