(From info card)
"This jar made of light clay from the Nubian sandstone has a typical Meroitic shape. The hyena, guinea fowl, and hare are animals native to Africa, although they are shown in a naturalistic style clearly influenced by Greek Hellenistic painting. The piles of rock depicted suggest that this design may be a Nile scene, including a rocky cataract of the river."
