Imagine that the graceful youths and maidens who adorn this splendid vase represent real people, citizens of the ancient world. What passions and ambitions moved them? What dreams of love, happiness and success might have possessed them? We can see that, except for their costumes, they hardly differ in appearance from men and women today. Could their hopes and dreams have been all that different either? - (PF.0006)
