This sculptural ceramic jar represents a cormorant, a seabird that connects the coast with the marine world. Symbolically, it is bound to the humid and inner world, so the cormorant takes the shape of a tuber that grows in the underworld. (UH)

Este es un cántaro escultórico de cerámica que representa cormorán, ave marina que conecta el litoral con el mundo marino. Simbólicamente, está vinculado al mundo al mundo de abajo y por ello el cormorán toma forma a partir de un tubérculo. (UH)
