Description
This Hellenistic Gold Bowl is a remarkable piece that comes from the Hellenistic period, which is characterized by great transformation. Many artistic changes took place during this time, with the Hellenistic period being defined by more drama, emotion and decoration. Craftsmen also began creating pottery that matched the opulence of the new ruling class. The refined gold finish in this bowl along with the extensive details on the handles demonstrate the interest in decoration and luxury in this heightened period. - (PH.0281)
