Sculpted Stoneware Wall Tile of an Ancestral Spirit, called a "Lasa". Reproducted from artefact drawing (orig. Ancient Italy).
In ancient times the people believed that after death their ancestors watched over them. There was also a stong connection with the natural world, so many images from this period reflect the magic & spirituality in nature.
The spirit here holds a bottle containing a magic potion which may transport the living to another dimension.
