This object has the following keywords:
  • Anatolian - Refers to the culture and styles that developed in antiquity in the geographical area of modern Turkey.
  • Chalcolithic - Refers to the period and culture associated with the transitional phase between the Stone Age and the Bronze Age. It is characterized by the hammering, melting, and casting of copper for ornaments and tools, and is distinguished from Bronze Age technologies in that the copper was typically not or only seldomly combined with tin or other metal in an alloy, and stone tools were used at the same time as metal ones.

  • Multiple-Brush Painted - Refers to a pottery style found in southeastern Anatolia from about 3200 to 2500 BCE. The pottery is wheelmade and well fired with an orange buff or light greenish buff body painted with red-orange to greenish black or black wavy lines.
