Description
The painted scene on this beautiful bowl is both hypnotic and mysterious. As in a dream, the writhing and coiling shapes of the creatures are familiar and yet just outside the bounds of reality. Did the bowl's creators understand what they saw as part of the natural world, or were they too drawn into a realm of fantastic, struggling monsters? - (PF.0736)
