Patra’s Archaeological Museum, Greece. original || edit

“Discovered in the necropolis of Patras, the skull wears a crown formed by bronze wires and painted clay flowers.”
“The vivid red circles in the centers of some flowers seems to be the standard hellenistic red glaze, while the various colors (pink, blue and green) of the petals seem to have been applied after the firing.”
