Amphora Sea Monster Vase
Bohemia, circa 1900
This piece has a powerful sense of motion. You can feel this sinister and muscular beast wrapping himself around a sea object, moments from his attack. Just what I love about so many Amphora pieces. You don't think of a vase when you see it. You experience an intriguing object with a personality that invites you into a relationship.
I was lucky to find this wicked boy because Amphora collectors only know of one other like him. You can see him in the dramatic Amphora video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZocaTgTtl4 or search YouTube for Amphora Pottery.
