During the middle Minoan period (2000-1550 BCE) these Aghios Onouphous wares evolved into the more elaborate Kamores ware. These vessels were decorated with elaborate geometric patterning of circles and spirals, along with the occasional sea creature, foreshadowing the Marine ware that would come later. These designs were most often executed in white, red and blue on a black background making a strong design.
I am particularly fond of the elegant form of these two pouring vessels. The geometric patterns create a unique contrast between the design and the organic shape of the vessel.
