Description
In the sunset of the classical world, a woman drew out the dark beauty of her eyes with kohl or ground malachite contained in this elegant vessel. We can be certain of nothing more about her--though we might guess she was beautiful- -yet somehow from this fragile clue we feel we know her well. We can see her smiling into her mirror and thinking--as women still do--about the evening to come, about the past, and the future... - (G.0074)
