It is difficult to say whether this votive represents a woman praying to a fertility goddess or the deity herself. She is rendered with the barest details--it is her eyes and hands that focus our attention--yet she conveys powerful emotions. We sense that we are in the presence of a religion that was already ancient when this statue was formed. - (FZ.060)
