This scene depicts a warrior hero seated on a throne attended by two men. At left, a male attendant extends his hand as the hero sits weary with his spear. At right a male attendant holds the hero's helmet and shield. They wait for direction from their master. The scene is drawn in a loose sketch like design with some color details on a white figure background. Around the top is a decorative pattern band with a meander design. The underside of this vase says that it is a hand painted copy by P. Vaglis after an original in the National Museum of Athens from 430 BC.

The origin region and shape are Attic Lekythos. In Athens, in the 5th century BC, while many artists were making red-figure vases, some artists were experimenting with a new technique of painting figures on a white ground. These white figure vases were decorative as well as funerary vases. The artist would use brighter colors; red, blue, and brown. The cloths were lightly painted and revealed the form of the body underneath.

Gallery quality reproduction made in Greece from terracotta, hand spun on the wheel, certified by the Greek Ministry with a pewter seal, and measures 20.5"H x 6"W x 6"D. The painted details have a recently unearthed finish.

NOTE: This is a large vase at 20.5"H. It is substantial and makes a grand impression. The design work and figures are done in a "sketch" style, loosely and quickly drawn. Presumably it is completed this way to replicate the original in the National Museum of Athens. We have not seen the original of this vase from the museum.

This vase is no longer manufactured. Once ours are sold, they are gone forever. As such, it is a treasure as if it were an original Greek museum piece. Our vase is already over 15 years old!
