Four silver-gilt attachments

Greek, South Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 162

These heads—two of helmeted Athena, two of horned Pan—served as decorative elements to an object, perhaps a vase, that was for show and pleasure as much as for use. They are most unusual, being cast rather than hammered and embellished with gold leaf.
