A certificate of authenticity provided with this item thank you.WE WILL POST WORLDWIDE.Modeled in a stylized way, this beige terracotta statuette represents a seated woman. Her extended arms are supporting an ample breast while the legs with exaggerated thighs are drawn back towards the body. Hands and feet are absent. With a simple pinch of the clay, the head is reduced to a rough appendage and is lacking in anatomical details which allow us to understand that identity is not essential. Dark brown stripes painted on the body likely depict tattoos, garments or jewelry.It is in a very good state of preservation to find original in this condition.Characteristic clay female figures like this one were produced in large numbers at sites belonging to Halaf culture which took place from 6000 to 5100 B.C. in modern-day Syria. Discovered in domestic as well as funerary contexts, the meaning of these « idols » is unknown. However, the emphasis on the sexual features allows us to think that they were associated with fertility and fecundity cults. Their small size could suggest a domestic cult. Condition: Perfect no damage, Colour: Red brown black, Material: Terracota, Type: Idols
