APULIAN RED-FIGURE LEBES GAMIKOS 
Mid 4th century BC 
height cm 19, with lid 

On one side, a standing naked young man, with a wreath on his head and the cloth wrapped around his left arm; a plant branch is held with his right hand; his gaze is turned towards his left, recalling the figure on the opposite side. On the other side, a woman holds a phiale and a branch; she is moving to her left, but her look is toward the young. The direction of the bodies, as opposed to that of their faces, generates a strong dynamism and the figures seem to dance.

Provenance. English private collection, purchased in some unidentified auction or Art Gallery during 1970s - 1980s.
