The figures on this neck-amphora are traditional, but their deployment reflects the experimental and innovative tendencies in Attic vase-painting during the last quarter of the sixth century B.C. Note the narrow clay-colored stripe beneath the picture panel; together with the black stripe just above, it helps to anchor the decoration on the body.
