Terracotta Etruscan-corinthian vase in the shape of a ram, 600 B.C.

This primitive ram-shaped vase is an example of the level of variety achieved by Greek ceramics. It is modelled on terracotta, with greater detail in the area of the animal's head. It is precisely that head that shows a hole through which liquids or objects would be introduced into the container. The rest of the body shows traces of polychrome that would have been intended to imitate the animal's coat.
