Covered with bold triangles, this charming pyxis perhaps originally contained cosmetics such as kohl for the eyes. It links us in an intimate way with some ancient lives, otherwise long forgotten. Centuries ago, human hands shaped this vessel, decorated it, filled it with some commodity, sold it, purchased it, used it daily. We have no clue who those individuals were, except that they touched this pyxis. When we place our hands where theirs once rested, we become, if only for a brief moment, part of its history. - (P.0196)
