Red bottle with white motifs, including appliqué white dots encircling an everted and beveled rim. A raised collar connects the neck with the subglobular body. Any motifs on the neck have been eroded through heavy ritual use over its life span. The body has four white radial T-bar motifs with an interior red circle. Each T-bar is surrounded by varying numbers of white circles. The bottles sits on a slab base. Radial T-bar motifs were popular between approximately AD 1250 and 1400, which would date the bottle. The cosmological significance of the motifs are currently unknown.
