Abstract Salvage excavations at the late prehistoric site of ‛Ein Zippori in the Lower Galilee, Israel, produced an unusual iconographic item. The find was unearthed during the 2007 excavations season in an Early Bronze Age IB context (ca. 3300–3100). On the base of a pottery storage jar, the figure of an animal was done on relief. This paper discusses the iconography of the item, its possible significance and the probable ways in which the relief was made. The only parallel to this item is found on a base of a holemouth jar from the Early Bronze Age site at Tel Bet Yerah (Khirbet Kerak), some kilometers to the east of ‛Ein Zippori.
