Glassware From Begram. Kapisa Province.
Second to the right, in the third scene yet another young lad offers a box of fruit to a woman dressed in a white cloak standing in the last scene on the fourth side. Two other more damaged tumblers (h. 24 cm; d. 13.4 cm and h. 4.8 cm; d. 14.7 cm.) show lively scenes of hunters and archers with tigers and other prey. These are the largest painted goblets yet to be found and are therefore unique.
