Glazed Greek pottery is sure to appeal, thanks to its simple, elegant form and brightly coloured paintings, some of which reveal unconventional interpretations of ancient myths. Moreover, the Roman and Greek receptacles in bronze or silver create excitement with their timeless, beautiful design. With their enchanting, colourful lines, ceramic artworks from ancient American civilisations open up a completely new world of captivating forms. In addition to those items that may be considered artworks in the literal sense or, at any rate, may be described as products of extraordinary craftsmanship, humble, everyday implements like bronze axes and elaborately hammered or sharpened Stone Age tools leave a profound impression of the technical skills of their makers; at the same time, they are evidence of a creative drive that satisfied both practical and aesthetic requirements, yet rivals the abilities of modern designers.
