Decoration A bearded male figure crouches before a large handled urn. The urn is decorated with a simple line pattern. The figure appears to be holding a small hammer in his right hand, which he is possibly in the process of using (his gaze/concentration appears fixed upon it). To the far right of cast a tree is depicted, perhaps to simply denote the scene is an exterior one (rural rather than urban might also be suggested).
