Greek Plate 24cm diameter, Ancient Greek poterry,Oedipus and the Sphinx
Decorate your wall with a Plate from Archaic period 6th century BC,with colors deteriorated like staying on the bottom of the sea for many centuries. The painting depicts Oedipus meeting the Sphinx at the crossroads on his journey between Thebes and Delphi. Oedipus must answer the Sphinx’s riddle correctly in order to pass. Failure means his own death and that of the besieged Thebans. The riddle was: "What walks on four feet in the morning, two in the afternoon and three at night?". Oedipus answered: "Man: as an infant, he crawls on all fours; as an adult, he walks on two legs and; in old age, he uses a walking stick". Oedipus was the first to answer the riddle correctly and, having heard Oedipus’ answer, the Sphinx was astounded and inexplicably killed herself by throwing herself into the sea. Oedipus thereby won the freedom of the Thebans, the kingdom of that city and a wife Jocasta, who it was later revealed was his mother.<br> Net weight: 0,65 kgr(1,43lbr), Diameter:24cm (9,36in) HAND MADE AND HAND PAINTED INGREECE / SAFE PACKAGE This product is accompaniedby a certificated that are HAND MADE from the start to finish .From the momentbeing clay and gets up on the wheel, the banking in the furnace, the backgroundcreation,the strip the design, the decoration and the finish.We strive tocapture and disseminate worldwide the style and culture of our ancestors .The Philosophy of the Company is to create customers that are fullysatisfied with the qualityy of our work, but also with our professionalism andconsistency,with the aim of buying again and again.We have been shipped smalland large orders at all over the world for many years since 1986.
