Bronze handles and rim of a cauldron


Not on view

Metal kraters with decorated rims and handles are extremely rare. The body of the vessel to which these were originally attached has not survived. The fine metalwork is quite worn and exhibits a mixture of influences from East and West characteristic of Cypriot manufacture. The demonlike figures on the handles are Near Eastern in origin, although they display strong Aegean stylistic influence.
