Kerma ware beaker

'This bowl comes from Kush. It was originally used for cooking and eating food. The pattern is made by putting the top of the bowl in the fire to make it black. That is why the middle is white. It was made in 1750-1550 BC and it is kind of similar to the lacquered bowl which was made in Japan. We liked this because it is pretty where the colours have mixed together.'
