Exclusive to the British Museum, an ornamental plate inspired by ancient Greek red-figure pottery.

This striking replica has been crafted from attic clay, and is based on an original piece now housed in the collection of The British Museum. The plate has been hand-made and painted in the artist's studio in Marathon City, just outside of Athens.

This design is based on an original kylix, a type of wine-drinking vessel, which features the skilful painted red-figure design of a youth and a hare, and dates to around 510-500 BC. The youth is naked except for a red hair-band and red anklet on his left leg, and his sideburns are shown by a patch of dilute glaze on his cheek. He is portrayed in a crouching position, and appears to have just let the hare loose.

A beautiful ornament celebrating ancient Greek design.
