Middle Bronze Age Terracotta Flask - PF.1811
Price: $1800.00
In the time of the patriarch Abraham, this elegant vessel might have held fine oils or balms. In Genesis it says that Abraham anointed Isaac with oil, perhaps with a flask like this. As we hold in our hands today, admiring its simple beauty, we are aware of the touch of other hands long ago. Who might have held it when it was new? Were the dreams and emotions that guided their lives so very different from our own? The vessel's graceful shape and simple ornament appeal as much to the contemporary eye as it did to the culture that created it. Such artifacts, ordinary enough in their own age, connect us in an intimate way with the world of the past. In its presence, we cross the bridge of time and set the imagination on a wondrous journey of discovery. - (PF.1811)
