Islamic Vessel with Floral Decoration from the 13th Century AD
Bactrian Stone Pyxis made of Serpentine / Steatite with Bird-Shaped Lid.
Modeled from a small terracotta plaque, this figurine belongs to a large group of statuettes known as “pappadès”, because of their polos (a high cylindrical hat) that makes them look like Orthodox priests.
This small, beautiful object is composed of two elements: a parallelepiped that serves as a base for two statuettes of young bulls, whose bodies are merged together and placed head to toe.
