Spiral patterns on the Neolithic pottery of East Asia and the Far East
Keywords: East Asia and Far East, the Neolithic, pottery, spiral patterns, spiral as geometric figure
AbstractThe paper focuses on the investigation of East Asian and Far East Neolithic spiral patterns, with the application of some mathematical principles. The basis of the research is published data on pottery assemblages from Japan, Eastern China, and the Amur River basin from the 6th to the beginning of the 1st mil. BC. We suggest a descriptive order of spiral patterns based on the typology of spiral figures used in geometry. This approach permits us to see the regional and cultural diversity of Neolithic spiral patterns within the research area.
