Chapter Summary

This chapter starts with the discussion of the &t;Painter of Karanog Grave 712&t; and vases of other painters working in related styles in the Aswan potteries, which supplied the Lower Nubian market with finewares and influenced therewith the development of Meroitic vase painting. It concludes with a discussion on a special group of vases similarly unknown from Egyptian sites, which were discussed by Steffen Weni. Meroitic vase painting developed from massproduct to luxury product and, in the Late Meroitic period, from luxury product again to mass-product. Early Meroitic painted pottery decorated under the influence of Hellenizing- style Egyptian wares produced at Thebes and other Egyptian sites is not always consequently utilized as dating evidence. While it was put by the vase painters in Aswan in landscapes that were meant to represent "the Nubian" environment, Nubian vase painters did not adopt the image of the antelope.
