Royal Cornwall Museum Photo Prints and Wall Art

Pelike, Southern Italy

A fawnware pelike, painted reddish brown, with a painted representation of a female face with wings on either side, dating from around 320 BC. Single female heads were a popular motif in the red-figure ware of Southern Italy. This decoration possibly represents Nike, the goddess of victory. Pottery such as this was usually used as a container for liquids. This pelike was collected from Pompeii, Italy. Bequest from Miss Mary Sophie Tucker
