Ancient Greek Pottery Opening Ceremony

I attended the gallery opening for the ancient greek pottery display that is in the gallery right now. I find it pretty amazing how pottery was used to convey stories and how each different display holds a different story. For instance, in the top picture, there are two eyes painted on the sides which in Greek, is a symbol to ward of evil. In the middle of the eyes, there are two male figures. It's just interesting to look at a piece and try and figure out which each symbol means or the story behind the art on the pottery.
