Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391395816537 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An exceptional Middle Bronze Age Cypriot ceramic of clearly anthropomorphic form.The ceramic has an ovoid body, which stands on three stubby legs, a short cylindrical neck, funnel spout and loop handle at the back. A protuberance represents the nose, two circular holes the ears, and the eyes are represented by groups of incisions on the face.The back of the neck and handle are adorned with wavy lines, probably representing stylised hair. The body of the vessel is adorned circumferentially with chequered bands, net lozenges and snake motif, all typical of middle bronze age Cypriot art.Many Cypriot pots are subtly anthropomorphic, however this piece is quite overtly so, leaving no doubt that the ancient artist intended this piece to be both a vessel as well as a three-dimensional representation of an abstract figure. Height: 7 inches.Condition: Unrestored, in excellent condition. Provenance:Ex. German private collection of Mr. H. Wagner, Berlin.Previously on the European market and purchased at auction in the 1970s/1980s.
