Amphora

Amphoras in ancient Greece were originally used for the transport and storage of wine and water. They were also given as prizes at the Panathenaic festivals. However, there is a minority of gold amphoras (gold as a symbol of kingship and connection between humans and Gods) and kraters, that were given as gifts to various gods and deities, in order to ask for favours and blessings or simply to show their admiration.

This “golden” Amphora is my kind of offer to contemporary “deities”.

Made from inox, steel, aluminum and copper.
