Bowl with Bird of Prey, circa 11-13 AD. Byzantine. "The bird’s hooked beak signals that it is a bird of prey. It may be a falcon trained for the hunt. Falconry or hawking was enjoyed by the aristocracy, who generally hunted with trained predators. Practical manuals describing the breeding, training, and treatment of these highly prized birds are evidence of the sport’s popularity."
