The Museum’s Greek and Roman Art collection houses a sarcophagus lid made in the 6th century B.C. that was found at Klazomenai on the west coast of Asia Minor. The lid's upper zone is decorated with a battle scene, while the bottom shows two lions attacking a boar. The sides are adorned with parallel rows of carefully painted ornamental scrolls. Our bold necklace is adapted from this striking scroll motif, nearly abstract in its simplicity.
