Approx 8" across with carved decoration, this dish has an African* look to it. I think it's possibly a representation of the sun but I don't know what significance - if any - the numbers of the outer rays might have. They start with two and increase clockwise up to six rays which discounts a sun-dial.
Has anybody seen similar before?

*I initially considered S. American in the pre-Columbian style but both the Inca and Aztec tended to represent the outer part of the Sun as flames rather than rays.

The stoneware body suggests to me that it isn't African.

I didn't put that bit very clearly, S-P. What I meant to say was that the imagery looks to have an African influence rather than the pot itself coming from Africa.
