Description

The bowl on a low foot and horizontal handles, of laconic or Spartan production, presents inside the tank a composition of dolphins along the rim and tuna arranged in a radial pattern around a central rosette. The outdoor pool is decorated with birds rendered with an elongated body and long graceful neck facing backwards. The figures are made with special painted, engraved and savings, on a clear engobe.

Together with two other bowls, also decorated with tuna on the internal basin and from the same funerary context, it was attributed to a refined ceramographer who took the conventional name of the Fish Painter from them.
