This bronze bowl is ornamented in gold and silver relief.  It was made to collect rainwater during the month of April.  This rain is considered "sacred" and is/was used for ritual purposes.

It was made for Ebu Said Bahadir Khan (1305–1335) who ruled in Mosul.  It was presented to the museum in 1333.
