Characteristics Of Greek Vase Painting

Horror Vacui: the need to fill every space so that demonds can't enter

Circles, diamonds, and triangles aren't used

Three horizontal lines seperate each change of decoration

the most important scene is placed between handles

rigid division of vase into a rational and balanced order

people & animals are constructed of geometric parts
