Pottery (5) – A hound in two colors (Corinth, 670-650 BCE)

On this vase, we see something new. Even if, in composition it resembles the vase with the two lions from Attica, it is of a much higher quality, but what is more, it employs two different colors – besides the light background, it uses black and a red color. Moreover, the details in the neck and the head are no longer painted, but incised, which allows for much greater detail.
