Description

The relatively large eyes and head of this seated woman are characteristic of figures painted by the Shuvalov Painter, a painter known to have painted numerous small vases during the mid- to late fifth century BC. Along with many mythological subjects, the Shuvalov Painter often showed women in domestic settings, as here; the box or chest she holds could be a bridal gift.
