crushing grapes
Description
Adapted from D'Amicone-etal-2009 p. 256:

Model of a man pressing of grapes. He has his legs immersed in a large vat and his arms, which are now lost because they were the only parts of the object that were seperately attached, were slightly off to the side - his hands gripping the rim of the vat.

The colors have not been preserved, but from the few traces left, it can be deduced that the naked parts of the man and the body of the vat were painted in a dark ochre color, whereas the skirt and the part inside the mouth of the vat were white.
