This pottery bowl was handmade and decorated with geometric designs in dark glossy paint. Potters of the Halaf Period produced some of the finest handmade pottery known from the ancient word. Halaf vessels are fired at high temperatures and painted with detailed patterns. Late Halaf Period, 5600-5200 BCE. From Tell Arpachiyah, Northern Mesopotamia, modern-day Ninawa Governorate, Iraq.
