Enhance your decor with an Amphora from Ancient Greece with Red Figure technique .Red-figure vase painting is one of the most important styles of figural Greek vase painting. It developed in Athens around 520 BC and remained in use until the late 3rd century BC.Its modern name is based on the figural depictions in red colour on a black background, in contrast to the preceding black-figure style with black figures on a red background.
Amphora is an Ancient Greek vase, used for storing wine and olive.
Fisrt side: Hercules with Goddess Athena. Heracles is seated a stool with his club resting against a leg. He wears a lion-skin cape and holds a cup in one hand. Athena, wearing a peaked helm, pours wine from an oinochoe jug. The painting perhaps depicts the hero's reception on Olympus following his apotheosis.
Second side: It is depicting Eros.In Greek mythology, Eros is the Greek god of love and sex. In the earliest account, he is a primordial god, while in later accounts he is described as one of the children of Aphrodite and Ares and, with some of his siblings, was one of the Erotes, a group of winged love gods.
