Feature 560

Area: South 
Dug in Year: 1999 
Feature Type: wall feature 
Feature Subtype: painting 
Location: Situate in one of the niches in the W wall 
It is painted into W wall niches (559) and very close to the floor levels. However, as it was drawn (1:1) in drawing no: it looked like zig zagy lines forming a kind of geometric design. It was difficult and fading away as we clean/expose it. It was behind the SIXTH layer of plaster and did not continue towards E part of the niche. it covers almost 24.1cm x 8.5cm area of the niche (total c. 192cm squared). It was composed with red ochre paint on to white/whitish/cream coloured plaster.
It suggest a kind decoration applied to the sides of the These niches which are situated in n wall. Those niches created by varied thickness of plaster application rather than cutting into the bricks or scooping out the bricks.

This paintings on the edge of the niches and the other features are discovered in this building by Mellaart suggest that B23 may have a special importance as he has suggested (shrine). However, that kind of paint application gives special importance to the niches (F.559).
