Terracotta jar with three handles


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 151

This jar is from the collection of Heinrich Schliemann. The spirals, arches, and other curvilinear motifs admirably complement the volumes of the shape and such functional adjuncts as the handles, which could have secured a cover or facilitated lifting with a rope.
