Levantine terracotta Levantine terracotta Statuette of a women breast-feeding a child from the 7th-6th century B.C. Almost complete and in good condition. The left arm of the woman, as well as the head of the baby are lost.
Modeled from a small terracotta plaque, this figurine belongs to a large group of statuettes known as “pappadès”, because of their polos (a high cylindrical hat) that makes them look like Orthodox priests.
This mask, delineated by three fringes of white, red and black beads, clearly highlights the anatomical details connected with the senses: the ears, the eyes with the black irises, the nose and the mouth made of red beads.
