Lid with a Lion attacking a Bull

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 453

This unglazed earthenware fragment was most likely used as the lid of a large cooking pot. The molded scene depicts a lion attacking a bull, and the feet at the bottom indicate that a similar scene was repeated on the other half of the lid.
