Seller: sf-fineart (2,897) 100%, Location: Los Angeles, California, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, Item: 380186696554 Original or Reproduction: Original, Culture: Daunian, Details: SUPERB Ancient DAUNIAN TERRACOTTA JAR - 5th Century BC This is a magnificent museum quality ancient DAUNIAN TERRACOTTA JAR, circa 5th Century BC. Further to the east of Etruria, in the area known as Daunia, the native Italic peoples produced their own distinctive ceramic wares between the 6th and 4th centuries B.C. Although the Daunian potters borrowed certain Greek decorative motifs and shapes, they never abandoned their traditional local style, which Daunian taste seemed to demand. They took special delight in human, animal, and bird forms: vases with zoomorphic bodies, handles and appendages in the shapes of hands, ears, and faces. These vases often appear bizarre to the modern eye, especially when compared to the restrained elegance of their Athenian counterparts, but their exuberance and charm is undeniable. This spectacular double handled pottery jar is painted in brown and red, with spiral, line and dot motifs. It has a flared rim and foot, measures 4 ¼" high, 7 ¼" wide and is in excellent original intact condition, it has not been repaired or restored. There are numerous surface encrustations and slight wear due to 2500 years of age. This item was legally imported into the United States over 50 years ago. Authenticity is GUARANTEED.
