043. Seated Idol - Neolithic

H: 6.37 cm
Allegedly from Thessaly
Early Neolithic
6th millennium B.C.

Modelled with the help of a spatula-type instrument and a stick. The navel marked by a hole.

Condition: head and right foot missing.

Of similar stance is the figure in the Volos Museum (see cat. no. 44, footnote 1), but for the different position of the arms raised to the chest on our example.

The figurine is highly abstract and the buttocks very steatopygous.
