red-figure askos: winged figures of Eros

The original askos by Makron dates to the first quarter of the 5th century BC and is now in a collection at Bowdoin College, Brunswick. It depicts two flying Erotes (Eros, god of love) on either side.

Makron, along with Douris and the Brygos Painter, was one of the first generation of red-figure artists in the 5th century BC. Noted for the amazing detail on clothing, hair and furniture, his favourite iconography included the Trojan Cycle, Dionysiac scenes, symposia and daily life.
