Tazza (footed dish), Adam van Vianen (I), 1618

silver (metal), h 12.9cm × l 16.5cm × w 12.0cm × w 283gr. More details

Everything on earth is transitory. This seems to be the almost ironic message conveyed by this costly object. The person taking the first sip from this tazza sees a couple entwined in an amorous embrace emerging from the wine. When the dish is drained, the merry drinker looks into the inside of a human skull.

On display in room 2.1
