Demon Pot With Skulls

This is a slab pot with an collaged image of a Bhutantese demon.  The source image is from Treasury of Fantastic and Mythological Creatures by Richard Huber.  It's a demon mask from the isolated Himalayan nation of Bhutan.  I think I completely missed the mouth shape of the original image.  The pot was going to be another spiky pot but I thought it would be too difficult to pick up if I added spikes.

Diameter is 5.5 inches.  The pot is also 5.5 inches high, but with the skulls, it's 8.5 inches.
