Object Description

A Greek Cycladic mottle stone bowl. A small flat base rises upwards and outwards to a large flat rim and a narrow opening. The thickness of the bowl increases from the base to the top. The detail of the stone is exquisite.

In the Neolithic period, Serpentine was a stone known for its hardness, cohesiveness, and purity. It could be easily worked to form durable and resilient objects, including vessels and tools. A number of axes made of serpentine from the Cycladic region have been discovered.

Date: 3rd millennium BC
