Description
Buried centuries ago as a tomb offering, this voluptuous woman served a dual purpose. On one level, she was a companion for the deceased, representing the eternal thoughts of friends and loved ones. On another, more spiritual level, her pronounced sexuality was meant to evoke the sensual joys of this life and the promise of rebirth and continuity in the next. Bold and unblushing, she seems sister to fertility goddesses the world over. In her presence, we sense the primal forces of life at work. - (PF.1441)
