Female Figurine of the Cyclades 2, Replica
£16.65 inc. tax

£16.65 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.
When you walk into a museum of bronze age artifacts, you will be surprised by the many femal figurines, dolls, pregnant women, women with tools, diviners ... Female wherever you look. Yes, there are the occasional male figurines, but it seems that the society was dominated by women. And this seems rightly so. You only need to move on to the department of the iron age and you will discover that less and less female figurines appear and that male objects are becoming to dominate the scenery. Apparently with the invention of the harder iron weapons, female warriors and defence became less and less warranted. Instead, the iron age of men had started. But back to the Bronze Ages.

This figurine here demonstrates the calm presence of women. Idols like this one are more than just religious items, but they are also this, representations of the close link between earthly and spiritual power. In the Cyclades, quite obviously, women had a firm position. Perhaps in many other older societies, they decided the lineage of heritage, as only they knew the real descendence of their offspring.

The Cyclades, today as well known for their beaches as for their archaeological sites, are famous Greek islands that stretch from the southeast of Athens into the Mediterranean Sea towards Cyprus and Crete. The inhabitants developed an enormously productive art scenery with abstract figurines like ours here.

The details
The figurine is made after a museum piece. It is a Female figurine of the canonical type or Kapsala variety as one can see a few similar ones in the famous Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens, of the Nicholas P. Goulandris Foundation.
The original was carved from marble in the Early Cycladic II period, which is the so-called Syos phase in the years between 2800 and 2300 BC


Our replica is made from a marble powder mix with raisin which has a similar stability to marble, and can be handcrafted to match the features of the original.
Our piece is, indeed, handcrafted and made in The Netherlands
