Terracotta lekythos (oil flask)

Attributed to the Carlsruhe Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Nike bearing a fillet

The good condition of the vase shows the rather dense quality of the added color and especially the use of a second white for the figure's flesh. This practice was short-lived. The Nike appears on her way to crown a victor.
