Hand-moulded near eastern terracotta seated feminine statuette from the Halaf culture (7th-5th millenium B.C.). Complete even if the arms are lost and the bust has been reglued. Polychromy remains.
This Near Easter Terracotta Miniature Feminine Statuette is considered as a Tell Halaf Statuette, as she features their style, typology and technique.
The figurine is flat and slightly rounded. The shield-shaped outline, typical of these idols known as “schematic”, probably represents the silhouette of a seated human body, but without any volume.
This idol is composed of three elements separated from each other: the bottle-shaped base, the cylindrical stem and the standard with the stylized animals.
This statuette, whose accurate outline is clearly marked, is almost flat although slightly rounded. No element enables us to distinguish one side from the other, or to determine the gender of the figurine.
Carved from a warm-colored, yellowish marble, this object has a well-proportioned and elegant shape that pleases the viewer with its geometric and simple outline.
