Large Ancient Greek Daunian Painted Pottery Bull Bowl - 500 B.c. For Sale

Large Ancient Greek Daunian Painted Pottery Bull Bowl - 500 B.c.

Alarge, rare, ancient Italic Daunianbowldating to approximately 500 B.C.

Thepiece is decorated with a cruciform effigy internally, with geometric and angular motif around, rendered in black and umber. In between the looped handles on each side are pairs of large pointed horns, perhaps indicating a ceremonialfunction. Many cultures, including theGreeks, revered bulls for their strength and virility.

Daunia was a historical region in southern Italy about which little is known. Unlike the Apulian Greeks, the Daunian potters were, on the whole,more influenced by native Italic ceramic traditions.

Despite their great beauty, Daunian pottery has been little studied, relative to other ceramics from the region.

Diameter including handles: 13 1/8 inches.

Ex. British collection - part of a collection of ceramic wares purchased by ArtAncient from a Sussex collector and acquired mostly in London from the 1970's-1980's.
