Neolithic Era
新石器时代
Boat Shaped Jug
船形壶

There doesn't seem to be any reason for the shape of this jar except that it is different and interesting answering a need for novelty. The handles make it possible for it to be hung, or perhaps, suspended over a fire. Hot tea, anyone? It was made between 7000 and 5000 years ago and excavated in Shangzhou County.
