In the ancient Near East, there was a long tradition for carving vessels from radiant alabaster. Graceful cups, bowls and jars found in the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankamen were made from this lovely stone, and its use has continued on until the present day. This exquisite jar was probably created to hold ointments or perfumes at the heath of the Classical Age. Even empty, it seems to glow with an inner light, the essence of something rare and wonderful. - (PF.0139)
