The original of this rhyton (shown below) dates from ca 1500BC and was found at Zakros. It is now in the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion, Crete.
It is a fine example of the Marine Style of Minoan art, which was characterised by the use of sea creatures, octopus, fish or dolphins, starfish or murex (as here) against a backdrop of rocks or seaweed.
Our collection of Minoan pottery is made in Greece. The vases themselves are manufactured in Greece, the images transferred and painted by hand. The texture, colouring and final finish is as close to that of the original as possible.
