SKYPHOS WITH LION

45

Description

Miniature skyphos from a Boeotian workshop. A lion is depicted on one side facing right, while rosettes and shaped plant motifs decorate the space around it. On the second side, a goose is depicted.

The potters were influenced by Eastern traditions and were fascinated by nature and its untamed forces; eventually, they captured them in vases in the form of wild animals or mythical creatures such as lions, griffins and sphinxes. Similar miniature vases were used either as toys or as offerings in sanctuaries.
