Terracotta  Libation Cup, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal
Probably produced in Bhaktipur on the western edge of the Kathmandu Valley where black pottery is still being produced, this cup was for ceremonial purposes only. It is in the form of a kapala with the head of Indra.

It is 3-1/3 inches high and 5-1/2 at its widest. A turned, footed pot with the added embellishments, then low fired, the cup is of indeterminate age. Undamaged.
