Blue-Painted Ibex Amphora from Malqata
This remarkable vase was found during the Museum's excavations of the palace of Amenhotep III at Malqata in western Thebes. The head of the ibex had broken off, but was found nearby. Like much of the pottery at Malqata, this amphora was made of a red clay covered with a cream colored slip and decorated with blue, red, and black paint.
