Three-Handled Palace Style Amphora

This amphora is from the end of the Palace Period (aprox. 1900-1350 BC). The style had been used in previous periods, but this vessels shows the progress of pottery-making with its carefully executed design. The amphora shows a helmet with boar’s tusks. The remaining decorative curved lines are thought to be abstracted landscapes.
