馬家窯(或甘肅仰韶)文化馬廠期最常見的器形是大小雙柄罐、壺、碗和燒杯。馬廠時期的器物上的裝飾圖案大多是幾何形的,包括曲線圖案、交叉刻划、菱形、三角形、圓形和方形等無窮無盡的組合。

這件帶有幾何圖案的微型罐造型典雅,繪有精緻的細節。這類罐子為後來的器物提供了靈感,其中最著名的是宋代的旋渦罐,其筆觸呈神秘的旋渦狀。

Large and small two-handled jars, pitchers, bowls, and beakers are the most common forms produced in the Machang phase of the Majiayao (or Gansu Yangshao) culture. Decorative motifs on Machang-period wares are largely geometric and include curvilinear patterns and cross-hatching, and lozenges, triangles, circles, and squares in an endless array of combinations.

This miniature jar with geometric patterns is elegantly shaped and painted with refined details. These type of jars served as inspiration for later wares, most notably the vortex jar of the Song Dynasty, with mysterious brush strokes in the form of a vortex.
