Seller: artancientltd (9,304) 99.6%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 201029664465 An ancient southeast Asian (Thailand) pottery bowl from the Ban Chiang culture, dating to approximately 500 B.C. A distinctive vessel with a bold form and individualistic style, the body rises from a rounded base. The piece is adorned with exuberant curvilinear forms, first incised and then complemented with impressed decoration. This striking earthenware vase was produced at the site of Ban Chiang, Thailand, and is typical of works attributed to its later phases. A site of remarkable social complexity, Ban Chiang is considered the most important prehistoric settlement so far discovered in southeast Asia. It marks an important stage in human cultural, social and technological evolution, presenting the earliest evidence for farming and complex metallurgy in the entire region. Its long cultural sequence, size and economic status has no parallel in any other contemporary site. Representing a seminal point in the history of human development in its region, it is unusual for vessels of this type to survive undamaged and in such excellent condition. A wonderful piece. For a Ban Chiang vessel decorated in similar fashion and currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, please follow this link. Height: 4 inches. Condition: Very good, small chip and stable crack running down from rim (as shown), otherwise unrestored and in good condition. Provenance: Ex. Sotheby's of New York, acquired 1970's.
