The design has as its source of inspiration:
Attica Red-Rhythmic Rhythm
In around 530 B.C. the "red-figure style" in the technique of decorating Greek vases appears and dominates in Athens. Although in the "black-figure", which was valid until then, the figures were in black and the background was the color of clay, in the red-figure the figures and decorative themes remain in the red color of the clay, while the design details are rendered with thin or voluminous black lines (textured line) and the background is painted black. The anatomical details become more realistic and the decoration of the vases is now characterized by painting, while the effort made for the rendering of the third dimension is obvious, with the problems remaining nonetheless.
