This type of small jar with a slender, ogival body is one of the most largely spread and elegant forms of the Naqada repertoire. The finely curved, very regular outline (it was probably achieved on a spinner) is only interrupted by the engraved line that marks the lip. The flat, circular base is too narrow to provide the vessel with good balance.
This axehead is made of a dark green stone mottled with black. It was carved from a long and thin fragment of jadeite. The shape recalls that of a drop, with a slender, well-rounded butt and an arched blade, which is not completely sharpened.
