Description

This wide-lipped footed dish with openwork of alternating triangular at the base, was used as a food offering vessel placed near a deceased person’s grave to accompany him or her to the afterlife.

Excavated from one of the 11 burial sites in Calatagan, Batangas in 1958, it was given as a gift to Ayala Museum in 1980 by Spanish-Filipino artist, Fernando Zobel, who did various research trips and wrote about Philippine culture in the 1950s.
