010/2013 – The strange support vessel


 
We call it “support vessels”: hyperbolic shapes open in both sides, used to support other pots. The strange thing in this one, collected inside de late Neolithic “hypogeum”, is that has a suspension nipple inside. To what purpose would this artifact be suspended for?
Chamamos a estas peças “vasos suporte”: peças hiperboloides com abertura de ambos os lados, destinadas a servir de suporte a recipientes. O estranho nesta peça, recolhida no “hipogeu” do Neolítico Final, é apresentar um mamilo de suspensão pelo interior. Para que seria esta peça suspensa?
