"Wit and Wine: A New Look at Ancient Iranian Ceramics"
2001-09-07 until 2001-12-30
Brooklyn Museum of Art
Brooklyn, NY, USA

This exhibition comprises forty-five pottery vessels -- most for holding or pouring wine -- from ancient Iran, ranging in date from the fifth millennium B.C. to the third century A.D.

Demonstrating the extraordinary range of Iranian pottery, the exhibition includes such whimsical examples as a jug like vessel supported by human feet, and sculptural works in the shape of camels and bulls. Some containers clearly imitate early metal prototypes, with their unusually thin walls and long spouts, while others are painted with sophisticated ornamental designs depicting the animals of the Iranian highland. The Brooklyn Museum of Art is the last scheduled venue for this traveling exhibition.
