Description
Perhaps taking their design from clay vessels first used in Babylon, such situlae were meant to stand upright on a tripod base. They might have served as offering vessels, containing votive gifts of rare oils or wine. The simplicity of its shape gives this vessel a timeless appeal. Its graceful curves invite our touch, as they no doubt did those of the ancient owners. Though we know little about them, when we hold this charming situla, we are connected directly with their vanished world. - (FZ.272)
