Imitation Predynastic Pot
Because I am a huge, huge nerd, I decided that I needed to spiffy up the terracotta planter we bought with some painting. It took me forever to decide what to do, though, until inspiration struck - I could use some Egyptian motifs! Now, with a few exceptions, most Egyptian pottery after the Predynastic period is pretty boring, so of course I stuck with the Predynastic. In particular, I borrowed some motifs from white cross-lined ware - a boat, a dancing figure, and a hippo. And here is the painted pot, sitting next to some papyrus stalks.
