Pots from one of the oldest ceramic cultures in the world, dating from the Middle Jomon period: 3500-2500 BCE, are displayed. Featuring three 'flame' and 'water' pots from ancient Japan, the exhibition looks at the imagery and symbolism on the pots, attempting to provide an insight into their mysterious cultural past, and demonstrates how Jomon pots have been an inspiration to today's Japanese culture.
