Description
Though she wears an elaborate headdress and jewelry, this voluptuous woman is otherwise naked. Placed long ago in an ancient tomb, she was meant to evoke human fertility, the promise of renewal and rebirth in the afterlife. In spirit, she is sister to the neolithic Venuses and the terracotta Astartes of the old world. Delicate and charming in appearance, she nonetheless radiates a primal energy, a power that is older than memory. - (PF.1340)
