Bone: horn (sheep)
Made of moufflon horn slightly bent in the lower part. The bowl’s walls are straight, and the bottom is raised towards the bowl’s edge. A small loop-like handle is bent inwards, toward the bowl’s open part. Articles made of moufflon horn, especially utensils, were handled with great care. Most of all, they were used during traditional rites and feasts. Abstract by V.V. Gorbacheva
