dc.descriptionThis bronze bowl-shaped tripod with lid is almost spherical in shape and was probably used as a toilet box. The decoration, divided by horizontal bands, consists of arabesques of intertwining dragon figures. Other decorative motifs, typical of this period, found on the vessel are bands of triangles and spirals, the mussel ornament and the plait line. The cover may be inverted and serve as a separate vessel.
