Greek Vase - Geometric Amphora (8.5" High)
The geometric amphora vase was a style prevalent throughout the ancient world. The motifs generally derived from textile patterns, including the distinctive Meander design with familiar ornamental pattern on both sides. The word is derived from the river Meander in Turkey, which twists and turns around upon itself like the ancient ornament. This replica vase is topped with a terracotta lid.
