A rare amuletic form of a faïence fish. This fine example of Egyptian craftsmanship really illustrates how unique and advanced the Egyptian culture was. This example in particular really shows off the naturalistic side of cult worship in the later part of Egyptian history. This amulet in particular demonstrates the views the Egyptian's had of the world around them. The affect of scales are given with the roundness to the base with a thick suspension hole through the middle. The piece still shows off the vibrant colours of the natural work around them blue, yellow and green. This amulet in particular was most likely used a decorative piece rather then being worn.

An ancient Greek red figure lekythos, ca. 350-300 B.C. Beautifully painted decoration of a festival scene. Delicate appearance, the piriform body sits upon a ringed base, with a strap handle and tall neck flaring gracefully into a trumpet mouth. The painted decoration depicts a youth shown nude, wearing only a ring of charms from his shoulder, kneeling and raising a ritual wine cup (skyphos), swirling tendrils border the scene.

The shape, style and subject of this beautiful vessel reflect strong Attic influence. Attic wares with scenes of children have long been thought to have been connected with the Anthesteria celebration, an Athenian festival held in late February in honor of Dionysus. The Anthesteria was an important festival to celebrate the maturing of the wine, which was opened on the first day and then consumed during various rituals. Amongst these was a drinking contest organized for the young boys, adorned with charms (as shown on this vessel), who drank from small jugs specially presented to them for the occasion.

Measurement: 4" in height.
