Goddess or Maiden

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This unique and beautifully preserved figurine was one of the first Greek experiments in casting the female form in bronze. She may have been a votive offering, possibly to the goddess Artemis. The simple facial features, horizontal layers of hair, awkward proportions, and solid form date this statuette to early in the Orientalizing period.
