Also named panther. species: panthera pardus (with 9 subspecies and some variants), household felidae. Heraldry: the spotted leopard as a heraldic device also a lion passant guardant as in the arms of England
subspecies Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis), also recognized as the Manchurian leopard, is a wild feline predator native to Korea, Northeast China and the Russian Far East. This leopard subspecies is property to the mountainous places of the taiga as nicely as other temperate forests. It is one particular of the rarest felids in the world with an estimated 30 to 45 people remaining in the wild. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has deemed the Amur leopard critically endangered, which means that it is regarded to be facing an really high threat of extinction in the wild. lookOf the nine subspecies of leopards, the Amur leopard shows the strongest divergence in coat pattern. The coat is of a pale, cream colour (specifically in winter) and has broadly spaced rosettes with thick, black rings and darkened centers. The length of the coat varies amongst 2.five cm (1 in) in summer season and 7.five cm (three in) in winter. The paler coat and longer fur of the Amur leopard make it distinct from other subspecies. They are also identified to have light, blue-green eyes.
Leopard in freier Wildbahn In Malaysia ist erstmals ein Leopard in freier Wildbahn fotografiert worden. Das beweist, dass es den Leoparden auch in Malaysia gibt", sagte der Leiter der Gesellschaft zur Bewahrung der Wildtiere, Melvin Gumal, der Nachrichtenagentur AFP. Auf den 11.500 Fotos, die Kameras im Endau-Rompin-Nationalpark machten, war das vom Aussterben bedrohte Tier allerdings nur dreimal zu sehen. Insgesamt hatten 70 Kameras zehn Jahre lang das Tierleben in dem Park aufgezeichnet. Das südostasiatische Malaysia ist vor allem für seine schwarzen Panther bekannt. (AFP, 19th April 2010)
variant black panther The name "panther" is usually restricted to the black variants of the species, but is also utilised to refer to those which are generally-colored for the species (tawny or spotted), … Black leopards are smaller and more lightly built than usually-pigmented men and women.
panther In antiquity, panthers [or leopards] are standard Dionysian steeds, e.g., the Greek mosaic at Pella with Dionysus on the panther, the Hellenistic Home of the Muses mosaic from Delos and the British Museum Roman Dionysus mosaic and Dionysus wall-painting fragment. Although the word "leopard" [pardus, male or pardalis, female] does not appear anyplace in Ovid, Panofsky has imported a Greek quotation of Philostratus below the mention of panther, where "panther" [panthera] happens only as soon as in Ovid: pictarumque iacent fera corpora pantherarum [Met. 3.669] in conjunction with Bacchus. As pointed out, the panther is a perfect animal for Dionysus since its name in Greek implies ”all wild” pan + thera. Elsewhere in Ovid, lynxes are identified with the god in two other passages exactly where the chariot of Bacchus is drawn by lynxes: colla lyncum [Met. 4.25], and lynxes were given by conquered India to the god: victa racemifero lyncas dedit India Baccho [Met. 15.413]. As Panofsky and other folks noted previously, tigers also draw the god’s chariot: tigribus adiunctis aurea lora dabat in Ars Amatoria I. 550. Confirming Ovidian use of tigers, or better, probably even deriving from the Ars Amatoria passage right here in a literary borrowing from Ovid, it is especially tigers in a Triumph of Dionysus mosaic at Sousse, Tunisia [circa 200 CE], who are shown drawing the chariot of Dionysus, where a panther is drinking [wine?] from a crater and a lion carries a child satyr.
Brygos Painter The Brygos Painter was an ancient Greek Attic red-figure vase painter of the Late Archaic period. Collectively with Onesimos (vase painter), Douris and Makron, he is amongst the most important bowl painters of his time. He was active in the first third of the fifth century BCE, specially in the 480s and 470s. … The Brygos Painter’s conventional name is derived from the potter Brygos who is recognized from signatures. The Brygos Painter seems to have painted the majority of bowls made by Brygos. The name Brygos appears on numerous vases and cups of the late 6th century BCE and early 5th century BCE. It is not identified whether the signature refers to the potter or painter or certainly whether or not the two roles had been separate, by convention they are referred to as two distinct people.
He was one of the most productive painters of his generation much more than 200 vases have been attributed to him. Apart from bowls, he also paonted other vase shapes, such as skyphoi, kantharoi, rhyta, a kalathos-like vessel with a pouring spout and a quantity of lekythoi. By far the majority of his operates were bowls of the sorts B and C. The latter have been often executed with no maeander base lines, the former regularly stood on conical bases. The maeanders about his tondo paintings are rarely continuous, most are interrupted by sets or rows of crosses. Apart from his red-figure work, the Brygos Painter is identified to have produced some white-ground vases.

► White ground technique ◄
The White Ground Approach of vase painting flourished amongst the late 6th century BCE till the end of the fifth century in Athens and Etruria. The earliest surviving instance of the technique is a fragmentary kantharos of ca. 570 BC signed by the potter-painter Nearchos, and located on the Athenian Acropolis. The approach consists of a white slip of the regional calcareous clay applied to a terracota vase and then painted. In the later development of the strategy, a coloured wash was frequently applied to the clothes or flesh of the figures depicted.
The earliest incidence of the method was utilized to create strobing bands of colour that emphasize the shape of the vase (as on Nearchos, NY Met 1926,26.49), the use of a white ground in conjunction with outline painting did not create till ca. 520 and is linked with the workshops of Andokides, Nikosthenes and Psiax. By the Classical period white ground can be identified most closely with three principle shapes: lekythoi, cups and kraters.
Pottery of ancient Greece
The White-ground Strategy was created at the end of the sixth century BC. As opposed to the much better-identified black-figure and red-figure strategies, its coloration was not achieved by way of the application and firing of slips but through the use of paints and gilding on a surface of white clay. It permitted for a higher level of polychromy than the other techniques, although the vases end up significantly less visually striking. The technique gained excellent value during the fifth and fourth centuries, specially in the kind of little lekythoi that became typical grave offerings. Essential representatives incorporate its inventor, the Achilles Painter, as effectively as Psiax, the Thanatos Painter and the Pistoxenos Painter which was active in Athens between circa 480 and 460 BC. … possibly started his apprenticeship with the Antiphon Painter in the workshop of Euphronios. He specialized in kylikes, which he painted in the red-figure style. Some of his greatest pieces, nevertheless, were created in the White Ground Approach. The most crucial motifs of his paintings are horses, warriors and thiasos imagery. He was 1 of the first painters to employ 4-colour polychromy, making use of slip, paints and gilding.
