Description
This sturdy, simple pot once contained food or drink during the Golden Age of Rome. To the people who used it then, it was perhaps an unremarkable vessel, notable more for its contents than its beauty. Yet, the passage of time has graced it with qualities it did not originally possess: it serves as a bridge to the past. We wonder whose hands crafted it, whose once grasped its handle and poured out its contents? As our fingers rest where theirs did so long ago, we recognize that the pot radiates with the energetic glow of those ancient lives. - (P.2809)
