An additional rope or cake of clay in various shapes is applied to the surface of the pottery as decorations and also helps to make the vessel sturdy. This is a typical pottery-making method in the Longshan Culture period well reflected from this pottery jar (jia) with two raised bands and loops. Similar shape was adopted later in bronze ware casting.
