Description
Simple but elegant, with the buff-colored slip typical of the New Kingdom, this clay vessel probably contained olive oil during Egypt’s golden age. Carved reliefs from the period depict offering tables for the dead piled high with such gifts, the sensual delights of this world meant to please the deceased in the next. The contents of this flask have vanished with the centuries, but the vessel still seems to glow with the touch of the hands that held it so long ago. - (PF.1153)
