Seller: Top-Rated Seller talos-artifacts (1,687) 100%, Location: Athens, Greece, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 222444235663 GIGANTOMACHY THEME The original, signed by the Pronomos Painter, dates to ca 400BC and is now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. The pictures are from the Gigantomachy, the mythical battle between gods and giants, which was depicted on the Siphnian Treasury in Delphi and on the Parthenon. On one side, there are six characters in combat. It is still uncertain as to which are the gods and which are the giants. However, given the outcome of the Gigantomachy (the gods overcame the giants), it might be that the three upper figures are gods (it has been suggested that the central figure is Ares, flanked by Castor and Pollux?), the giants beneath; or that the bearded figures are the giants, those without a beard the gods. On the reverse, there are four characters. As with the Gigantomachy, none is assigned an identity, but the tree suggests that this is a woodland scene: some have suggested that these are heroes in Elysium. Red-figure vase painting is one of the most important styles of figural Greek vase painting. It developed in Athens around 530 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.
