The image shows what appears to be an ancient ceramic pot. The pot has a spherical body with a narrow neck that transitions into a figure that forms the lid. The figure on the top seems to represent an animal's head, possibly a jaguar or similar, with small, pointy ears, incised eyes, nose, and mouth, presenting a sort of stylized face.
The pot's surface is ornate with decorative patterns that include horizontal bands and wave-like motifs in black over a brown background, with the neck-lid figure being of a lighter color, possibly due to usage or the original design. The vessel has two small loop handles on opposite sides, close to the neck, and a small hole functioning possibly as a spout on one side. The background is neutral, showing a gradient from dark to light, which highlights the pot's features without distraction.
