    A miniature replica which is part of a range from the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, Greece. The replica measures 10cm tall by 3.5cm wide.

    The range illustrates the art that flourished in the central Aegean islands (between Greece and Turkey) during the early bronze age, 3300 - 2000 BC. Cycladic art was geometric and its subject matter was always human beings. Some of its most representative examples are the figurines, which were exquisite creations of marble carving. This replica is a fine example of these.

    The care and time taken to produce these figures, in marble rather than some softer material, and in a well-defined form that was maintained over centuries, suggests that they were important to the people who made and used them. They probably had religious significance and are unlikely to have been dolls or toys. Most come from graves, though they have also been found in settlements. They perhaps had some use in the rituals of the living before accompanying their owners to the grave.

    This resin reproduction is hand-finished and patinated. It has been moulded directly from the original object under stringent supervision of the Museum of Cycladic Art.
