Established in 2000 BC near by the estuary of the Great Menderes (Meander) River, Miletus (Milet, in present-day Turkey) located in the west of Anatolia, was an important seaside ancient harbor city which has been the theme of many works of art in the Aegean region in ancient times. This city, which became rich as a result of being an important trade center where goods were exchanged by Europe, North Africa, Aegean Islands, Cyprus and Asia during the Antique Age, also gained strength militarily by force of its strong navy. Hinging on this environment of abundance and prosperity, philosophy developed alongside with science and the most important philosophers of the period such as Thales and Pythagoras took their nourishment from this city. The Miletian Pitcher (Trefoil-mouthed Oenokhoe*) was designed by drawing inspiration from a terracotta jug dating back to 630 BC. On the body of the pitcher, griffons, goats, gazelles and waterfowls, whereas at the very bottom border, lotus and lotus buds are depicted. Similar trefoil-mouthed oenochoes like the Miletian Pitchers are exhibited in many museums around the world such as Glyptothek Museum in Germany, Louvre Museum in Paris, and Getty Museum in the US. Miletian Pitcher is produced from handmade glass and all of the relief patterns are decorated with gold and antiquated paints. 1026908 | R: 19 cm H: 31,5 cm Milet Testi’nin üretimi 2000 adet ile sınırlıdır.
