Description
Once used for perfume or precious oils, this aryballos allows only drops of its contents to pour forth. The winged panther, painted in black, cream and brown, guarded the contents that this aryballos once contained. His wings are wide spread and his eyes stare forward without a blink. He may still think he is guarding the precious contents that vanished centuries ago. The beauty of this work of art remains to be treasured today as it was in the past. - (PF.3426)
