Storage Jars from 2200 years ago

This magnificent jar was built by folks who were living at the same time, the Mauryan empire was collapsing in Northern India, while the Han empire in China was extending from Vietnam to Kazakhistan and the Romans had just fought the legendary Hannibal of Carthage in the Punic wars.

There is something wondourous to see an object that was built around 200 BC or 2200 years ago.

I clicked this photo at the Ahar Museum in Udaipur. I highly recommend visiting it if you are ever in Udaipur, India.
