Seller: artancientltd (9,479) 99.4%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201685037736 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An ancient Greek Red-Figure Pottery Lekanis, produced in Southern Italy during the 4th Century BC.The vase painters of Greek South Italy were ultimately inspired by Athenian red-figure artists, although they soon developed their own imaginative depictions, shapes and techniques. The humorous scene on this otherwise fairly typical cosmetics box, or lekanis, speaks of a freedom of expression seldom found on Greek vases.A bird, perhaps a thrush, is shown pecking at a small gecko as he tries to scurry away. As the design is not a standard type, we are left with the lovely notion that the ancient painter was simply copying a scene from the Italian countryside that caught his imagination.
