Western Greek, Sicily, ca. 6th/5th century BC
A rare and amusing pinax of an animalistic Gorgon with large eyes and facial features. Gorgoneion pinakes served as votive objects deposited in a sanctuary or affixed within a burial chamber. This unusual presentation will certainly radiate its apotropaic properties when needed.
Condition: Put together from 4 fragments, but complete. Joints invisible
Provenance: ex. property of Mr. M. Q.-F, Horgen, Switzerland, since 1971
