a close view of the goddess. It is not a find from the archeological site. It was
discovered in the near-by area. The massive hips are prominent and it
obviously represents a well-fed woman.
my view, she is dressed in a garment similar to the tunic reconstructed by
is seated on her heels. What seems to be the representation of breasts,
might be her arms bent forward with protruding elbows.
it possible that the figure has assumed a pose that can be described as a
posture of meditation?
posture of ritual hearing?
