This Geometric Charrioteer Lekythos Greek Vase is reproduced after an original from 800 BC. In the early 8th century, the Greek vase artist has begun to introduce figure decoration to his vases. This landmark in ancient Greek art foretells what will be fundamental to Classical art -- the representation of men, gods, and animals as themes for storytelling. At center framed by decorative borders we see a stately warrior holding the reigns of his three horses in a chariot. He is poised for action. The forms are highly stylized. The vase painting style is black and red figure where the figures are silhouetted in color and details are incised on the surface. The remainder of the vase is covered with varied geometric patterns, which encircle the piece at the top and bottom.

Gallery quality reproduction made in Greece from terracotta, hand spun on the wheel, certified by the Greek Ministry with a pewter seal, and measures 19.5"H x 6"W x 6"D. The painted details have a recently unearthed finish.

This vase is no longer manufactured. Once ours are sold, they are gone forever. As such, it is a treasure as if it were an original Greek museum piece. Our vase is already over 15 years old!
