This side and top view of a Zelidva funnel mouth pot is half its actual height of 22 cm. The constricted opening is fairly wide. The Zelidva have only recently descended from the mountains. The general making and shape of the funnel mouth is the same as all other Godaliy funnel mouth pots. The decoration is also very similar, like the bands around the neck. The roulette design is hardly visible, but the herring bone pattern (also found among the Dughwede) around the funnel neck is very defined. I am not certain whether the pot has been burnished or whether the shine is a result of ageing. The pot was documented in Bokko, which is close to Kirawa town (see map).
