Apulianzing Painter (Greek, active ca. 330-320 BC)

Red-figure bell Krater wint three women and three youths, Terracotta, Hellenistic, 39,69x37,47 cm

The Walters Art Museum  Inv. 48.2761

Here, three women carry offerings, a mirror, and a tambourine in preparation for a ritual. This scene is much more carefully executed than the one on the opposite side, which shows three youths with mantles wrapped completely around their bodies. Groups of two or three youths often appear on the backs of theses vases, and these scenes are usually inferior to those on the front. Depictions of small groups of people holding various objects are common on vases attributed to this painter, who combines Apulian elements with Campanian features, like the use of white to represent female skin.

Statuette of an Enthroned Figure
1st century A.D.
Roman
Bronze, silver inlay
15.5 x 8.1 x 9.5 cm (6 1/8 x 3 3/8 x 3 3/4 in.)
This statuette is thought to depict Concordia, the Roman personification of harmony, one of the four principal virtues of the Roman Empire. Concordia sits on a high-backed throne and wears an ornamental headband, a long tunic tied above her waist, and a cloak, which drapes over her left shoulder and lap. The figure likely held a libation dish in her extended right hand and a cornucopia (horn of plenty) in her missing left hand.
