Enhance your decor with a Red figure Kylix from Ancient Greece. In the pottery in Ancient Greece kylix is the most common type of wine-drinking cup. It has a broad, relatively shallow, body raised on a stem from a foot and usually two horizontal handles disposed symmetrically.
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.
This Red figure Kylix depicts Erato with God Apollo.Erato is the Muse of love poetry. In the Orphic hymn to the Muses, it is Erato who charms the sight. Since the Renaissance she has mostly been shown with a wreath of myrte and rosesros, holding a lyre,a musical instrument often associated with Apollon the Olympian God in ancient Greek religion and mythology,the god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy.
