The ivory bowl at the lab!

Today, I brought in the beautiful ivory bowl from Area A to the Safi lab at BIU to have it drawn and photographed. Here you can see me removing the bowl from its special packaging, carefully handling it with gloves so that the ivory is not adversely affected by its handling. Needless to say, there were a lot of oohs and ahhs from the “crowd”…

It’s quite something – and from our initial study of the bowl and its parallels – it’s quite a special little fellow! :-)
