This object has the following keywords:
  • clay - Naturally occurring sediments that are produced by chemical actions resulting during the weathering of rocks. Clays are composed of hydrated aluminum silicates, such as Kaolinite, Illite, Palygorskite, Attapulgite, Bentonite, and Montmorillonite. Small amounts of other minerals can change the color (white, yellow, brown or red) and texture of the clays. Clays may include all earths that form a paste with water and harden when heated.
  • Levantine - Refers generally to the culture and styles that developed in antiquity in the Levant, which is the Near Eastern area along the eastern coasts of the Mediterranean, corresponding primarily to modern Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel.
  • oil lamps - Lamps designed to burn oil as fuel, typically with a reservoir for holding the oil and an opening from which a wick can be extended.
