Female figurine (idol) (a)

A marble idol of a woman in Cycladic art with a rectangular shaped face. She is shown naked, upright, and with her hands crossed across her stomach. Her legs are represented graphically; they are joined, with the separation shown by a deep groove. Her face is an abstraction, only her nose is shown, which was a basic characteristic of Cycladic art.

It dates from 2400-2200 b.C.
