Neolithic vessel with relief decoration

The shapes, finishes and decorations of prehistoric pottery allow us to distinguish different regional cultural groups and, at the same time, recognise contacts between them. In this display case you can see the “bigots” decorative motif, which consists of rib-like lines in relief in the form of an arch stretching from one side of a handle to the other. We find this motif on pottery from the lower stretch of the Ebro and other parts of Catalonia, as well as in southern and central France.
