Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Late Geometric - Refers to the most advanced phase of Geometric style, dating to the mid- and late eighth century BCE and appearing across a wide geographical area. It varied significantly in different locations, but in general it is characterized in vase painting by a sophistication in the representation of figures and animals, including the portrayal of recognizable mythological figures and narrative scenes. Sculpture from this period depicts a wide variety of animals and human figures that are stylized, but more naturalistic than in earlier art.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
  • Sub-geometric - Refers to a phase of Greek style that followed the Geometric style chronologically, retained many elements of Geometric style, and was either transitional or an archaism, depending upon the geographic location. In some cases, it occurred after the flourishing of the Geometric period, but before the Orientalizing period was fully established, and thus provided a transition from one style to the other. In other cases, it occurred after the Orientalizing period was established, and thus was a conscious attempt to recreate the earlier Geometric style.
