Study on the Amasis painter - Black figure lekythos with a rider


I'm interested in buying this or a similar item

from Thetis cabinet (one-of-a-kind) 

Introducing our exquisite Black Figure Lekythos, adorned with a captivating horse-racing scene. This remarkable piece of art brings to life the exhilaration of athletes jubilantly celebrating their victory in the games, as a spirited youth and his galloping horse cross the finish line.

Our skilled vase painter has meticulously reconstructed this scene to its original splendor, infusing it with vibrant 'added colors' of purple and white. These hues breathe new life into the garments of the rider and the judges, restoring their faded glory.

Inspired by the aesthetics of the 6th century BCE, the first two vases, created during the period between December 2022 and January 2023, are a testament to our commitment to preserving and sharing ancient artistry. We are proud to announce that we produce these unique pieces every 5-6 months, ensuring art enthusiasts can relish this timeless masterpiece.
