Terracotta neck-amphora

Greek, Attic

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 151

The style of this vase represents the transition from Geometric, with its preponderance of ornament and its spare artistic idiom, to what would become the black-figure technique, which at this time was already practiced in Corinth. The main scene on the body continues the tradition of chariots in procession.
