Enhance your decor with a Red figure Kylix from Ancient Greece. In the pottery in Ancient Greece kylix (or cylix) is the most common type of wine-drinking cup. It has a broad, relatively shallow, body raised on a stem from a foot and usually two horizontal handles disposed symmetrically. The main alternative wine-cup shape was the kantharos, with a narrower and deeper cup and high vertical handles. Red-figure vase painting is one of the most important styles of figural Greek vase painting. It developed in Athens around 520 BC and remained in use until the late 3rd century BC.It replaced the previously dominant style of black figure vase painting within a few decades. Its modern name is based on the figural depictions in red colour on a black background, in contrast to the preceding black-figure style with black figures on a red background. Achilles tending the wounded Patroclus.Achilles and Patroclus, are one of the most celebrated male warrior pairs in Greek literature after the Trojan War. Achilles is a young Greek warrior in Homer’s Iliad who possesses superhuman strength and ability as he was born from a nymph and a mortal. He is known for his only weakness being in his heel as his mother dipped him in the river Styx as an infant and held him by his heel. Patroclus is a warrior who grew up as a role model and companion to Achilles as appointed by Achilles’ father.Net weight: 0,7 kgr(1,6lbr), Height:9cm (3,5in) ,Diameter:16cm(6,24in) HAND MADE AND HAND PAINTED IN GREECE / SAFE PACKAGE This product is accompanied by a certificated that are HAND MADE from the start to finish .From the moment being clay and gets up on the wheel, the banking in the furnace, the background creation,the strip the design, the decoration and the finish.We strive to capture and disseminate worldwide the style and culture of our ancestors .The Philosophy of the Company is to create customers that are fully satisfied with the qualityy of our work, but also with our professionalism and consistency,with the aim of buying again and again.We have been shipped small and large orders at all over the world for many years since 1986.
