Bowl with Lioness, circa 1100-1300. Byzantine. "Images of lions were popular throughout the medieval world. Although lions were rare in Byzantium, they appear frequently in art—from illuminated manuscripts and elegant silver to everyday objects, such as ceramics and copper-alloy jewelry—and in literature, both secular and religious. The boldly stylized pose of the lioness, which suggests the beast’s power, is also seen on Islamic metalwork."

Bowl with Bird of Prey, circa 11-13 AD. Byzantine. "The bird’s hooked beak signals that it is a bird of prey. It may be a falcon trained for the hunt. Falconry or hawking was enjoyed by the aristocracy, who generally hunted with trained predators. Practical manuals describing the breeding, training, and treatment of these highly prized birds are evidence of the sport’s popularity."
