ZOOMORPHIC PATTERNS

Emerging in the middle period of Trypilian culture, painted designs often include figures of animals. Moving from left to right, are graceful silhouettes of dogs, goats, bears, deer and large cattle with lyre-shaped horns. Some of them have bushy tails resembling fir-tree branches or wheat spikes. Zoomorphic representations range from semi-realistic to highly stylized. Snake motifs are common encircling the entire body of the vessel. Animal images reflect the importance of animal husbandry and hunting in Trypilian society. They also can be associated with the cult of the Great Goddess whose sacred animals were depicted on pottery.
