Oinochoe in the Camirus, or "Wild Goat" Style


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description An "oinochoe" was used for serving wine. This piece's style is usually termed "Camirus," after a site on the island of Rhodes where many examples have been found, but they were actually made in the Greek cities of southern Asia Minor. The horizontal rows of decoration filled with wild goats and floral motifs reflect influence from the civilizations of the ancient Near East. The curving contours and combination of outlined shapes and solid black masses characterize this style, distinguishing it from the angular silhouettes of the pottery from the preceding Geometric period.
