Etruscan Art - ETRUSCAN ARYBALLOS


ARYBALLOS CERETANOARYBALLOS CERETANOARYBALLOS CERETANOARYBALLOS CERETANO

Etruscan, VII-VI century B.C. A rare White-on-Red aryballos with pear-shaped body, broad disc rim, little cylindrical neck decorated with ivory bands over a reddish ground.
This type of pottery, originating from Phoenicia, was produced in Etruria from the end of the 8th century BCE and into the 7th century BCE, particularly at Cerveteri and Veii. The red-coloured vessels were often covered with a white slip and then decorated with red geometric or floral designs. Alternatively, white was used to create designs on the unpainted red background. Large storage vases with small handled lids are common of this type and then kraters which also have scenes such as sea battles and marching warriors. Commonly used as a scent or oil bottle, particularly by athletes at the baths, the aryballos derives from the globular wine pourer (oinochoe) of the Geometric style (9th century BC), evolving its distinctive shape in the early Proto-Corinthian style (8th century BC).
