Description
So beautiful is this ancient vessel that it transcends the merely functional and becomes a work of art. Imagine the ancient hands that created it, and quickly etched its surface with lines that seem to echo with spontaneous life. Imagine the hands that selected it in the marketplace, and later poured out its contents of oil. Such a jug is far more than shaped clay with the patina of centuries: it is a bond that ties us--if only for a moment--to those long vanished lives. - (P.0405)
