Rectiliner= A type of pottery where things revolve around rectengular forms. 2) Rigid division of a vase into a rational and balanced order. 3) The use of Deometric shapes= Triangules ( houndsteeth) Greek meander, diamonds and circles are uncommon in Athenian art work. 4) Three horizontal lines separate each change of decoration. 5) The most important scene is placed between the handles where the vase swells out. This brings the scene into the viewers space abnd the handles frame it. 6) People and animals on the vase are constructed out of crude geometric parts.
