114-350 Coker

The large wine container, amphora, was created  by and unknown artist around 490 BCE. It was created in the red figure style, the last and most detailed forms of greek pottery. The scene that is shown is that of two people who appear to be catching a deer or antelope. Thanks to the Red figure style both people are well detailed, with the artist paying close attention to human anatomy. The strip beneath the two people and animal works to anchor the trio in space so they aren't floating around in the black back ground, this also allows the three to create a scene and story.
