Comments: For sale is this beautiful neolithic clay Vinca Idol with Vinca script. The Vinca Culture/Turdas Culture or sometimes referred to as Old Europe is a vastly understudied advanced ancient culture that existed in modern day Serbia and Romania. This ancient culture is a huge enigma because they seemed to be too advanced for their time. The Vinca people had developed religion, farming, metallurgy, two story homes, advanced artistic style and wore seemly modern day clothing. Many idols have been found that depict woman wearing short skirts and v-neck tops that look as if you find them on the pages of Vogue today. The ancient Vinca culture also had developed an ancient written language that is vastly under studied and debate persists as to what their dozens and dozens of symbols mean. All this while most of Europe was living a hunter gatherer existence. They were the first culture to use the sw*stika symbol (long before it was adopted as a symbol of hate). There is also hat the ancient Vinca inspired the later Sumerian cultures as they share certain symbology and ancient gods. The culture had developed advanced religious practices revolving around the worship of birds, which lead to their enigmatic and strange idols that have been left behind. Curiously, there is no evidence hat the ancient Vinca people had any war or need for protection as no weapons of any kind have ever been found at any Vinca archaeology sites. I truly hope that more research and funding goes into unlocking the secrets of this still almost unknown advance ancient civilization This particular idol is a very large example and is extremely rare as its feature some Vinca script across the naval region of this ancient goddess. There has been past restorations to the pieces but they were done by a museum and are securely intact. This piece comes from a private UK collection.
