  • Black figure greek pottery, Amphora vase which is decorated with 24 carat gold flakes, you can get a glimpse of two activities. Ancient Greek runners of Panathinaic games and The Greek Goddess Athena.

    Attic black-figure pottery often represented scenes inspired by myths, epics, as well as political, social, and cultural organizations of ancient Athens. Such scenes were much more marketable, betraying the contemporary concerns of Athenian citizens, and often conveyed indirect social or political messages. Images on Amphora depicting commerce, industry, or more conventional aspects of the everyday lives of the Athenians were very rare.

    Amphora or Amphorae was a container used by the Ancient Greeks to transport and store a variety of products, both liquid and dry, but primarily wine. They were typically made of ceramic, but metals and other materials have also been discovered. Amphorae variants were among the many shapes used in Ancient Greek vase painting.
