Description
Round-hipped as any primitive fertility goddess, this nude woman holds her gently swollen belly as if to focus attention on it. She appears to be praying. Is she pregnant, or does she want to be? We are left wondering about the lives behind such dedicatory figures. This is perhaps the only remaining trace of some real-life woman for whom these matters were of vital importance. Or perhaps somewhere her descendants live on. - (PF.0717)
