Early Greek Figurines

Should you be looking for a beautiful example of Early Greek antiques, this “Psi” idol is an outstanding choice.  Decorated by hand with brownish red paint, this statue represents a woman with arms uplifted and a flat head.

This type of figure first appeared in Mycenaean tombs beginning in the 15th century B.C.  These figures represent a Neolithic mother goddess.  Some posit, therefore, that they should be classified as  ritual objects that were intended to help with fertility and female needs.
