A small ceramic jar, cylindrical in shape that has a flat top and a smooth transition into four stout legs. In the center of the jar, a glossy black hemisphere caps the opening to the jar. The flat top of the jar has a organic, scored texture and is glazed in a matte gold lustre. The side and feet of the jar are glazed in a matte, mottled green black that sharply contrasts the gold on its top, and the glossy black on its lid.
