Funerary Greek Geometric Vase, In the early 8th century, the artist adds figure decoration of men, gods, and animals to his vases--the most fundamental element in the later tradition of Classical art. This Geometric Amphora was a funerary monument. Intricate geometric patterns cover the neck and body. In the main scene, a corpse lies on the bed surrounded by standing figures that mourn him. This monument would have stood on the tomb of an Athenian aristocrat, above the urn that contained his cremated bones.

Gallery quality reproduction made in Greece from terra-cotta, hand spun on the wheel, certified by the Greek Ministry with a pewter seal, and measures 24.5"H x 12.5"W.
