The obverse of this charming bell krater depicts
a dancing draped female wearing a sakkos. Her
body is orientated towards the viewer’s right,
whilst her head turns towards the left creating a
sense of movement. The figure clutches a mirror
in her outstretched left hand, and a wreath
entwined with a fillet in her right. The
arrangement of the dancer corresponds to the
popular ‘X’ shaped composition. Fillets are
arranged in the field and a palmette design
flanks the figure on both sides. A vertical line
motif runs beneath the rim of the krater and a
wave motif near the base.
The reverse shows a female head in profile
wearing a sakkos with a fillet and a laurel plant
in the field.
