Very Rare Khmer 11th Century Zoomorphic Lime Pot

This extremely rare and interesting stoneware lime pot was made during the 11th century. From the side it appears animalistic in form but from the front it has a human face with arms bent and hands together as if in the act of praying. Note the strange expression of the down-turned mouth and its bulging eyes ! It is quite "heavily-potted" and coated in a finely-crackled translucent pale green glaze.

Length 12.5 cm (5 inches). Although there is no sign of any repair or restoration, the glaze has flaked away in places and there are signs of loss to the tail and protrusion above the nose.
