DescriptionLarge ceramic vessel form in an abstracted torso shape. Drawn on the bulging surface are a reclining female nude and the figure of a horse. These images are outlined with a bold and painterly black line, and filled with rich colors of pale pink, peach, deep red, indigo, and green. The rounded forms of the female nude and horse correspond to the bulges on the surface.
