I acquired a pile of pottery fragments. I like to have an occasional restoration project.
Put together they form two large figures. One is 95 percent complete, and depicts a zodiac figure, the snake. The other one misses the head, and a piece from the side. I
glued them together and they are impressively big, 40 cm.
The red pottery is porous, and smell intense like old pottery. The decoration is cold painted over a white slip. There were some old restorations, but the pieces fit perfect. I decided to restore the snake to the best of my abilities, and leave the other one as is.
