Description
The functional simplicity of this terracotta lends it a timeless elegance that appeals to contemporary tastes as much as it surely did to ancient ones. Even after the passage of millennia, the design of such a cup could hardly be improved upon. What did it once contain, we wonder, and who drank from it? Perhaps it contained special fluid that ancient people drank for sustenance and/or pleasure. Did those ancient people stop, as we do, to admire the grace of the cup as they held it in their hands? We feel in its presence a direct bond with those long-forgotten individuals. - (PF.3319)
