"Phi" Figure

Description Provenance Credit
Description This figurine is of the "Phi" type, named after the shape of the Greek letter it resembles. It probably represents a goddess, but may depict a worshipper. Curving painted lines lend the figure a graceful, animated air. She has pellet eyes and a projecting nose. The two projecting breasts emphasize her femininity.
Provenance E. Segredakis, New York, 1945; Walters Art Museum, 1945, by purchase.
Credit Museum purchase, 1945
