  • Middle Cypriote - Refers to the period from about 1900 to 1600 BCE on the island of Cyprus. The art of the period is characterized by a continuation of Early Cypriote styles including red-polished pottery and the production of flat painted or incised terracotta figurines some with modeled legs and arms.
  • 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."
