Romania Pitcher 20th - Private Collection Athens Greece

Zoomorphic ceramic pitcher from the village Poieniţa in Argeş, (southern central Romania). The mouth has been formatted in the shape of a mouflon’s head with horns in full curl. The European Mouflon (Ovis ammon musimon) is thought to be one of the two ancestors for all modern domestic sheep breeds. Acclimatized especially in the mountains of southern Romania, the mouflon is an important part of the country’s natural heritage. This pitcher is dated 1957.
