Procession of musicians, clowns, jugglers.

Black-figure amphora with painting by the Micali Painter.
Clay. 6th century BCE.

London, The British Museum

Description:
Another black-figure amphora of the Micali group from Vulci is girded by palmettes on the lower part of the body and by freize with the procession of musicians, clowns, jugglers, reminding the composition with the same content on the walls of Etruscan toms (p. 102). The figure outlines (p. 174) of this painting are slim, flexible and active, as though drawn quickly and carelessly by a skilful hand.
