Loutrophore, Urn Greek
Loutrophore, the exhibition of the dead around 500-480 BCE. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap from AutoDesk.
Loutrophorus was used to transport water used in rites of purification prior to weddings or funerals. In the case of a funeral rite, the women of the house cleanse the body before coating it with scented oil and dressing it to place it on a funeral bed. Identical vases were also used to mark graves or offerings.
