During the Geometric Period in ancient greek art (900BC to 700BC), geometric motifs were used in greek pottery painting. The center for geometric pottery was Athens and spread through trade. Vases in this period have several horizontal bands about the circumference covering the vase.

Between these lines humans and animals were also present. Geometric shapes were used in previous cultures but what distinguishes the Greek geometric art is the method of their arrangement in the surface of the vessel
The lebes, in Ancient Greece, was originally a deep bowl with a rounded bottom: it needed a stand, frequently a sacrificial tripod, to remain upright. In classical times a foot was attached, and it was typically used as a mixing bowl in food preparation.
