Why this is a
Masterpiece

Red pottery mixed with sand. The pot has an open mouth with a thin neck, a slip shoulder, a round belly and a small flat. The four vertically decorative bands are painted from the mouth down to to the upper belly. Grapevines and a field with plants are painted. The pot itself is painted in a dark red colour. Three "net-designs" are drawn on a yellow and white background, a design that stands for “fields”. The grapevines have curled branches and leaves, which are full of grapes. This indicates that in addition to agriculture, horticulture was very well developed. It is a very special object.

History of the Object
The tombs of the Chawuhu form an important archeaological site on the Silk Road.
