Description

Female figure from Anatolia (Kiliya type, 3300-2500 BC)
Between 3300 and 2000 BC, a highly developed culture flourished along the west coast of Anatolia (in contemporary Turkey) and the nearby Cyclades islands. The area was relatively densely populated and was home to numerous fortified settlements that were prosperous due to the burgeoning sea trade. One of the most important aspects of this early cultures was its sculpture, usually executed in the wonderful white marble that was plentiful locally. The affecting, stylized female figures appeal to us most. The almost futuristic Kiliya type figurines, named after the first place they were found in Anatolia, are called Stargazers due to their upturned gaze. Little is known about the meaning of these female figures. Owing to their decorations they might be fertility figurines. However, many were also found in cemeteries where they may have had a ceremonial function. Important artists such as Hepworth, Moore, Picasso and Modigliani were inspired by this entirely unique style of sculpture.

Made from white resin to look like pristine marble. Black metal base.
