Vase with Relief Decoration


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Faience vessels with decorations in raised relief are typical of the early Roman Period in Egypt. Some have only vegetal patterns; others combine floral and geometric patterns with representations of animals. This vase may belong to a group which came from Memphis. The neck of the vase displays animals and fantastical creatures, the shoulder has a geometric pattern, and the lower portion of the body has a second frieze with lions, dogs and cats. The section above the foot has a vegetal pattern.
