Terracotta globular cup with two handles


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 170

The shape of the cup is derived from Etruscan bucchero models. The decoration shows influences from both East Greece and the Greek mainland. Most noteworthy is the phallos bird that was popular in Athenian vase-painting during the second half of the sixth century B.C.
