This object has the following keywords:
  • Greek - Refers broadly to the culture and styles associated with the area of southeast Europe comprising the southern Balkan peninsula, Peloponnese, and various offshore islands, as well as other territories that were colonized or held by Greece during various periods of history.
  • Neolithic - Refers to the final stage of Stone Age development of a human culture, characterized by sophisticated stone tools created by polishing or grinding, wide-spread domestication of animals and plants, settlement in permanent villages, and the appearance of pottery and weaving. Neolithic cultures first appeared during the Holocene Epoch, around 9,000 BCE, and survived in certain remote areas of the world into the 19th century. Artistic products include wooden and stone houses, religious monuments, fortifications, carvings, paintings, textiles, and pottery.
  • painting - The application of paint to a surface primarily for protection or to apply a general color. For the application of pigments to a surface to create an expressive or communicative image, use "painting (image-making)."
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
  • slip - Fine clay which, when mixed with water, results in a fluid with a creamlike consistency, used in casting, glazing, decorating, and repairing ceramic wares; in its natural state, it contains sufficient flux to be used for glazing and decorating without the need of additives. For ceramic glaze with a high content of slip, use "slip glaze."
