This pot has a series of very carefully drawn nested triangles and ovals covering its entire surface. In addition to the body design, two lines circle the pot just below the rim. These lines are regularly interrupted by three dots. A series of very fine diagonal lines decorate the lip, or top edge, of the pot. This vessel, like all of the ones pictured, is from Mound 4.
