ceramic tile (tile)


This glazed earthenware tile with buff pink body depicts two of Mara’s daughters. Symbolising greed, lust or hatred, the tile depicts elegantly coiffured women, who are bare breasted and liberally bejewelled. A chocolate brown glaze has been applied to highlight the women’s sarongs.

This object is on display at RAMM in the World Cultures gallery.
