Neck Amphora with Two Figures


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This amphora depicts a bearded, mantled man on the front. He is leaning over and resting on a staff to the right. His head is lowered, and he holds out a necklace or wreath in his hands for the woman on the back. The paint for the object he holds is lost, but the preliminary sketch indicates it was there or intended. A woman on the back wears a chiton and mantle and stands to the left. Her right arm is hidden underneath her drapery, but her left hand and arm, although covered by drapery, can be perceived at her side. Her hair is tied up in a bun at back. Her pose with shoulders straight suggests that she is attentive to the offering of the man on the front.
