Quick Reference


A small ceramic object comprising a patterned face with a knob behind to hold it. The face is presumed to have been used as a stamp, perhaps for applying pigments to the skin or to garments in a repeat pattern. They date to the late Neolithic of central Europe, although similar things are also known in the Americas from quite separate origins.
