Simple yet graceful in form, this lovely jug perhaps contained scented oil during the Golden Age of Rome. When we hold it today, we are aware of the touch of ancient hands: shaping it, glazing it, selling it in some bustling marketplace, pouring out its precious contents. In its presence, those ancient citizens of Rome--otherwise forgotten--come briefly alive. We feel the energy of their lives, and we become part of the unbroken chain of history. - (P.2841)
