Name/Title

Aryballos

About this object

This aryballos is a small container that was used for holding perfume. The small jug features decorations of rosettes and what appear to be padded dancers who have had red colour added to their exaggerated bellies and rumps. The dancers appear to be part of a 'pre-dramatic' era of performance. This object is believed to be part of a set decorated by one person, named the 'De Young Painter'.
