Very Rare Hellenistic Sculpture of a Pregnant Woman
Very Rare Hellenistic Sculpture of a pregnant Lady "Fertility Goddess" 300-100 BC - This superb statue has been, until recently, displayed at The Museum of Biblical Archaelogy, Columbus Ohio. It stands 140mm high (160mm including plexiglass base)and is 45mm wide at the largest section. The staue itself is in magnificent condition and has had no restoration or repair. It appears to be a cast made clay statue with incredible detail. This piece was discovered in Judea, The Holy Land and was most probably a fertility Godess, due to her obvious pregnant state. I have taken a number of photos in different light to try and show the fantastic detail, the colour is a dark rich terracotta.
