Antique Vase

I got this for a gift. I know it’s terra-cotta with silver on top. Would anyone know where this would be from? Egyptian? Greek? African?

Re: Lake Baikal Gene

Where can I find more information about how this gene was discovered? I've read the description on DNA Consultants' website but was wondering how many people actually have this gene?
