Museum replica | Artificial casting | Handmade | Partially gilded | Size 25 x 42 cm (W/H)


Bull Head Rhyton

The bull constantly takes a high standing among the Minoans as a central point of artistic game and agreable sacrifice of the god mother. An unrepetably beautiful bull head Rhyton, a masterpiece of Cnossos, served the priestesses as a libration vessel, from the nostrils of which the Gretan wine flowed. Original: Archeological Museum Heraclion, Creta. The New Palace of Cronos. The late Minoan period, 16th century BC. The replica impresses by the outstanding quality and elaborate execution. The green and black polymer ars mundi museum replica (cast by hand) effectively contrasts with the gilded horns. Width 25 cm. Height 42 cm.
