Notes
Content : Title from folder.

Source note : From

Content: Pritned on border: "174" "Fig. 259. Conventional alligator, from the lost color ware ; Fig. 260. Style of convention in the alligator group of ware ; Fig. 261. Style of convention in the alligator group of ware." "The examples here shown have already experienced decided changes through the constraints of the ceramic art, but are the most graphic delineations preserved to us. They are free hand products, executed by mere decorators, perhaps by women, who were servile copyists of the forms employed by those skilled in sacred art." "A third illustration from the same group of ware, given in fig. 259, shows, in some respects, a higher degree of convention. The scales are here represented by triangular dentals, which occupy the entire length of the back. These dentals are filled with the round dots that stand singly in the preceding cases." Includes additional text.
