During archaeological excavations at Horbat Yoah, a zoomorphic vessel representing a bird-bowl was found among other pottery vessels in one of the five excavated tombs, possibly belonging to a large cemetery dated to the Middle Bronze IIA period. Pottery vessels in the shape of animals or birds were popular in the early periods of history and were often repeated in their designs, bearing similar features. An intensive search of close parallels for our bowl has not been successful. The Horbat Yoah bird-bowl is distinguished by a special iconography and deserves an article discussing its shape, form and ethnic influences through the Levant during the said period.
