This bowl is of slightly truncated rectangular design carved from one piece of wood. There is evidence of pigment on both the outside and inside surfaces of the bowl , leading one to believe it was probably used as a paint bowl. Two opposing corners located diagonally from each other exhibit small tabular handles, one of which appears to have broken off.
