Description
One of a pair, this graceful vessel was used to pour offerings of wine or milk onto the tomb of some ancient person--almost certainly a woman--who lived during the flower of the Classical age. The head itself may represent a goddess, perhaps a protector of women, or an idealized feminine beauty that still delights the senses. We are reminded of those long ago lives- -full of laughter, color, tears and dreams--which perhaps were not so very different from our own. - (PF.0339)
