Ringed hittite decanter and wine glass set / unique design / totally hand made work. The sun goddess was the hittite most respected goddess. They were crafting the kantharos model with a hole in the middle, which was a representation of the sun.
The hittites were placing the wine filled carafe on top of a hill before sunriseand towards the direction of the sun. They believed that wine in it was blessed, when the sun rises and passes through the hole in the middle. They used the wine in blessing people at religious rituals. As it is completeley handmade - shaped by hand and hand-painted - and crafted with organic materials it is a peculiar product. The decanter is created of natural red clay and processed with milk between two stages of kilning.
It is covered with silver ions inside, that's why it is antiseptic and completeley safe for wine drinking. All of our items are fully crafted out of organic materials and do not include any chemicals, toxic materials, non-organic additives or whatsoever.
The paints are all organic plant based and therefore completely safe for health. As ethnic home decor, we're happy to meet you with this rare and precious artwork. This item is made of ceramic.
