Minoan Bird Shaped Vessel Replica, Museum of Agios Nikolaos Crete (12mm)
An early Minoan Bird-shaped vessel discovered in the cemetery of Hagia Photia in Siteia, Crete. It is dated back to the MMII period.
This fine museum quality replica is a unique "one of a kind" ceramic reproduction made from clay originating from the same fields where the original was found to ensure the same "look and feel" as the actual piece. All paint decorations were also made replicating methods used by potters of the particular period. This is why this item is hard to distinguish from the original and requires the attached traditional lead stamp (shown as part of the description tag) that identifies it as a reproduction made by an auathorized artist. Like the actual museum displays each piece is tagged with its description.
Shipped with decorative stand as shown in the picture.
