This object has the following keywords:
  • bowls - Rounded, cuplike, hollow parts of objects, such as the body of a stemmed vessel or the part of a pipe in which tobacco is burned.
  • bowls - Rounded vessels that are generally wider than they are high, usually hemispherical or nearly so. A bowl may have a spreading base or foot ring and sometimes two handles or a cover. Distinguished from a cup, which is rather deep than wide.
  • East Greek
  • Ionian - Distinctive pottery painting styles produced in ancient Ionia, a region of central coastal Anatolia in present-day Turkey.
  • 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.
  • vase paintings - Refers to two-dimensional decoration applied to pottery by using paint made of metallic oxides or other pigments held in suspension in slip or another medium. The term is particularly used to refer to Ancient Greek red- and black-figure works. See also "porcelain paintings (visual works)."
  • vessels - Containers designed to serve as receptacles for a liquid or other substance, usually those of circular section and made of some durable material; especially containers of this nature in domestic use, employed in connection with the preparation or serving of food or drink, and usually of a size suitable for carrying by hand.
