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 by searching YouTube for "Amphora Pottery."
