Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263828051937 LOT 28Seller's Estimate: USD 800 - 1,200 Magna Graecia, Apulia, Canosan Hellenistic Period, ca. 3rd century BCE. A gorgeous standing figure of a woman, made from ceramic and painted in the distinctive Canosan style. She wears a large diadem and is wrapped in a himation over a tunic with a long, frilled skirt that pools at her feet. White pigment is visible across the surface of the piece. She stands on an integrated, round pedestal. 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 slip, as you can see here; it probably once had other colors, like blue and pink, accenting it.
