Greek Corinthians Aryballos Owl
During the 7th century, Corinth developed its own style for the manufacture of pottery. The two preceding centuries had been dominated by Athen’s imposed, geometric style. The basic shape of the owl, emblem of the Goddess Pallas Athena, was created using a mold. The stylised decoration reveals great professionalism and a sense of expression. A string can be run through the hole in the owl’s foot enabling the flask to be hung up. This also allowed it to be carried around its owner’s wrist at the bathhouse.
