Greek Vase Mug from The Met Museum


Our mug replicates the eye-catching motif on a terracotta volute-krater (ca. 450 B.C.) in The Met collection. Attributed to the ancient Greek Painter of the Woolly Satyrs, this Attic vase for mixing water and wine boasts a spectacular narrative scene depicting a battle between the Greeks and the Amazons, a fabled race of warrior women. The ancient Greeks rarely illustrated historical events in art; rather, they preferred the grandeur of mythology.
