Fragment of a terracotta amphora (jar)
Attributed to the Amasis Painter
ca. 550 B.C.
3 3/16 × 4 5/8 × 3/8 in. (8.1 × 11.7 × 0.9 cm)
Anonymous Gift, 1985
Top of the mane, ear, and topknot of a horse in a quadriga (four-horse chariot)
The style of the Amasis Painter is so distinct, in the rendering of ornament as much as in the figure work, that fragments of his vases are readily recognizable.
