Harmony is achieved from the repetitive pattern of the single dolphin and several birds on top given in three groups to give a relatively simpler syntax.

The tails of the dolphins and the dorsal fins are not aligned with the body this suggesting search for balance in motion. The general design of the animals and the shape of the jug gives
