Water has multiple meanings within Islam. Not only is it the source of life, but it has a purifying meaning for man, since it cleanses both his exterior (the body) and his interior (the soul), the latter with an eminently spiritual meaning. This jug of water with a handle has an original design that recalls in its forms the body of a bird or dove.
