Description This unusual seal shows two nude female figures squatting on stools with their legs spread and bent, perhaps in childbirth. Each holds flowers in both hands, a symbol of fertility. Between them stands another figure, perhaps a childbirth goddess. The image is uniquely Cypriot.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1924, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
