normally i would post this in tiki finds, but i have never seen one of these before and was curious if this was some sort of vase or utensil holder. There are 2 cut outs on wither side which could have been for flowers or something else. I recently got this on ebay. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

It is a head vase, when you put flowers in, it looks like the Woman has flowers in her hair
I can't read the name on the bottom of the vase in the picture, can you tell me what it says?

Glad to see you're feeling better! Now, don't rile up the punctuation police.
