Crafted in a robust yet charming style, this brass sculpture may originally have served as a votive gift at at temple. A voluptuous woman ornately costumed, holds the dish of an oil lamp whose flame would have illuminated her features. Her identity is uncertain, but her unblushing sensuality would connect her to an ancient tradition of nature and fertility deities. She radiates a timeless aura of benign power, one easily recognizable to any time or culture. We wonder who asked for her favor so long ago, and how their prayers were answered. - (FZ.222)
