Description
With black eyes and red lips the lovely head of a woman is framed by a garland of seven large pointed leaves around the edge of a fringe of hair. Very long leaf-shaped earrings hang to the upper rim of the base. A full-figured woman stands in the center of the head attached to the curved handle. Her clenched fist pulls the himation tightly over her left arm. Her head is turned slightly upwards wearing a disc-shaped headdress. Delicate coloration in gentle pastel shades gives the vase a feeling of peaceful repose, recalling the riches of life while honoring the spirit of the departed. - (PF.5368)
