A ceramic Gui tripod vessel with upward pointing spout and a rare second level on top; the globular body with three short legs and encircled by a twist band, which is attached to an arching handle to the rear. The Dawenkou culture was a group of Neolithic communities who lived primarily in Shandong, but also appeared in Anhui, Henan and Jiangsu, China. These tripod vessels, known as Gui, seem to have been used for ritual purposes.
