Bronze bowl


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

In the tondo, four wild goats in a stand of papyrus

The large bowl has a pair of handles and a rim ornamented with small knobs. The central, slightly recessed tondo is decorated with a rosette framed by a guilloche on which stand four wild goats. Behind them appears a stylized stand of papyrus. This is one of a group of chased metal bowls in which Egyptianizing motifs are particularly evident.
