A new past/present for all of our readers- this time looking at vessels. Used by the ancient Greeks to carry food and wine, buried with ancient Egyptians in their tombs, and even found at the neolithic site of Banpo, dating back to 4800 BC, the amphora represents a strong link to ancient civilizations and cultures. Depicted here by two different artists, these prints are a celebration of this beautiful and highly symbolic vessel.
