A large and massive Hellenistic tanagrina, terracotta statue from Tanagra (Greece), 4th.-3rd. century BC.
A terrific large figurine of the woman dressed in long gown, very fine quality details.
The Tanagra figurines were a mold-cast type of Greek terracotta figurines produced from the later fourth century B.C.E., primarily in the Boeotian town of Tanagra.
They were coated with a liquid white slip before firing and were sometimes painted afterwards in naturalistic tints with watercolors.
