Pendant (?) in the shape of a female figure
This is a beautiful, small pendant dating from the Neolithic period. It bears a rare representation of a woman in the so-called “delivery position”. The surface, despite its small size, is very smoothly finished. The head and the lower part of the left foot of the figure are missing. The woman is presented with her legs spread open and her knees bent, while her arms touch the upper part of her kneecaps. The legs, the waist and her shoulders are attributed with lines carved in incision, whereas there is a shallow, oval dimple on the lower part of her abdomen.
