Description
During the iron age, there was a thriving trade between ancient Cyprus and Palestine. This boldly painted jug, with its pattern of concentric red and brown circles, perhaps contained olive oil and was exchanged for some local product of Judea. Its exact history is, of course, unknown; but there is no mistaking the vital human energy that lingers about it still. The vessel links us in an unbroken thread with vanished lives and distant times. - (PF.0081)
