Kendi vase, pottery, 5th – 8th centuries AD., Oc Eo culture.
Kendi vases were popular among pottery products discovered in the Oc Eo culture. They are diverse in forms, such as long spout kendi vases, short spout kendi vases or Linga-shaped kendi vases. A typical Kensi vase often has a sphere-shaped body which is bulged in the middle and tapering toward the neck and the base. The mouth is flared and curve. The vase is a large shape. Some vases are decorated with triangle and wave patterns on the body, some have red or black lead colours. Kendi vases were discovered mostly in temple ruins. Thus, it is possible that these artefacts were used in Brahmin religious ceremonies.
