Pick a Vase, Any Vase

Germany - Greek Vases, State Collections of Antiques, Munich

Notes: Griechische vasen translates to Greek vases, which makes sense, because the picture shows a bunch of vases.  This ancient Greek pottery is on display at the Staatliche Antikensammlunge, or State Collections of Antiquities, in Munich, Germany.  The museum was founded in the mid-1800s, and has collections of Greek, Roman and Etruscan art.  Their collection of antique pottery is comparable to the collections of the Louvre and the British Museum. I really like the owl-shaped vase, but the one in the lower left with the eyes is giving me the creeps.
