Terracotta oinochoe (jug) in the form of a woman's head

Attributed to Class K: Toronto Class of Head Vases

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 157

During the fifth century B.C., Attic potters and painters applied their skill and imagination not only to the basic vase shapes but also to a variety of others. Vases in the form of human heads were particularly popular and, in the early part of the century, were embellished with special effects of color and texture.
