Above the woman's head is a fish. All is painted in bright pink, blue, brown, and white hues. One can only imagine how stunning this piece was in ancient Italy! Size: 7" W x 4.875" H (17.8 cm x 12.4 cm); 6.25" H (15.9 cm) on included custom stand. Canosa, or Canosion as it was known then, was a major center of the ceramics and pottery trade when it was a Greek polis. It produced truly unique pottery, completely different in decoration style (although not in shape) from earlier and neighboring traditions. The clay is buff, with the decoration applied directly to it without the use of slip. The entire body was covered with white, with a second ground of pink applied as the background to the decorative/figural program.
