Did you know?

The flat, integrated base of this statuette includes an attachment element below.


Standing barefoot on a flat base, this woman wears a tunic with a decorated edge, a thick mantle draped over her left shoulder, and a headband. She extends both hands, though the left is damaged and the right missing. Her identity might have been made clear by the attributes she once held—a bird or pomegranate for Turan (the Etruscan analogue to Aphrodite), for example, or an offering dish or vessel for a worshipper.
