Artefact No. 11: Canosan Funerary Vessel

In the Greek colonies of Southern Italy, known in antiquity as Magna Graecia, unorthodox forms and painting styles were seamlessly merged with the standard Greek style, creating distinctive works unique to the Hellenistic world.

This terracotta funerary vessel comes from the region of Canosa, named after the ancient city in northern Apulia.

The pastel hued paint that decorates the surface of Canosan ceramics reminds us what a vibrant and colorful place the classical world really was. Rarely do more than traces of the paint survive the ravages of time, making the extensive pink and yellow hues that decorate this vessel as remarkable as they are beautiful.

This large container features a swollen belly with three spouts and a central handle. An appliqué female face - a deceased relative? a Goddess? - sits on either side. Similar works were typically interred as burial offerings to provide for the deceased throughout eternity.

400 BC to 300 BC

18.75" / 47.6cm high
