LL 1345

On display

This flower pot is made in white jasper which has been dipped in green jasper. The white decoration is made in moulds and then applied in a process known as sprigging. The sprigging on this pot depicts two Muses, the 'Dipping of Achilles' and a 'Sacrifice to Aesculapius' The shape of the flower pot is copied from the shape of an ancient Roman funerary monument known as a cippus.
