Antelope shaped vase

Antelope shaped vase
Libation vase in the shape of a tied up antelope, whose legs are used as the handle. The vase's neck is the antelope's neck, the liquid pouring out from his mouth. On the back of its head there are two holes for inserting the horns, possibly worked in a different material. Coming from Abydos, it could be considered one of the Egyptian prototypes of the vases found by Reisner in Meroe, showing the same typology.
