Created in the age of David and Solomon, this
simple but charming vessel glows with the rich
patina of history. Who can say through whose
hands it might have passed centuries ago? It
was perhaps from such a jug that Samuel
anointed Saul king of Israel. Whatever its past,
we are aware that it was crafted by ancient
hands, held and used by people who lived in a
time and place much different from our own.
The energy of those vanished lives clings to it
still and sets our imaginations stirring.
