Terracotta jug


Not on view

A bird is depicted with a fish that is probably to be understood as being held in its beak. The placement of the decoration on the vase, the combination of line and mass in articulating the forms, and the evocative use of arrowlike forms indicate a vase-painter of remarkable creativity.
