In between two periods

This piece is interesting as it can be placed between the geometric and the orientalizing period (700-600 BC), even as I have no firm date for the piece. No mater the exact dating, this kind of changes in decoration was to be common and Greek art would soon change into a more eastern influenced style.

Anyway my argument is based on the decoration, notice the creature on the upper part of the vessel, yet there are geometric traits on the other part of the decoration.
