Life is made up of marble and mud ~Nathaniel Hawthorne~

This is a replica of modern marble oil jar. Oil jar was used in ancient Israel for daily usage; especially it was used to anoint someone. Ex: King. Later anointing concept developed and used in Judaism and later in Christianity.

 

Many religions have their anointing ritual in various forms. You many find more information at wikipedia under ‘anointing’
