Knossos - The Lioness' head Vase
Rhyton in the form of a lioness's head of off-white translucent limestone, a work of exceptional plasticity rendered naturalistically. The inlays in the snout and eyes, possibly of jasper and crystal, like those on the bull's head rhyton (found also in Knossos) have not been preserved. From the west wing Upper Halls of Knossos Palace. Neopalatial Period 1600- 1500 BC - Heraklion Museum.
