The decorated pottery excavated by the Museum's Egyptian Expedition at Malqata, the palace city of Amenhotep III, is primarily of the type called blue-painted ware. The vessels are embellished with floral and animal motifs painted in a palette limited to blue, red, and black (see 11.215.464 and 11.215.472). A few are adorned with three-dimensional decorative elements (see 11.215.460 and 11.215.477). This pot has been painted with a scene of birds flying up from a marsh. A sim...ilar motif may also be seen on two painted ceiling fragments from the main palace (see 12.180.257 and 12.180.258).
