This glazed faience bowl is decorated with a drinking scene, represented by a person holding a calyx in his hand with his left hand to his waist. He wears a turban on his head with several folds and a hair lock on his cheek.

The face is distinguished by its almond eyes, straight nose, and small mouth, all traits of Fatimid art. The drawing is surrounded by a decorative cockeye design. To the right of the main drawing there is an ewer, or pitcher, hanging in the air.

Dimensions:  Height 7.7 cm  Diameter 28 cm
