Neolithic Vinca Terracotta Figure

An ancient Neolithic Vinca terracotta figure of a woman, abstract in form, with her hands resting at the sides of her pronounced belly, her garments delineated in incised and cross-hatched lines.

Vinca Culture, Balkans.
Ca. 5000-4500 BC.
Height: 4 1/4 in. (11 cm).

The Vinca Culture derives its name from the modern village of Vinca, located on the banks of Danube, near Belgrade, where one of the largest and most significant prehistoric Neolithic settlements in Europe was discovered in 1908. The vast majority of Vinca figures represent women and animals.

Formerly in the R. W. collection, Canada; previously Hermann Ginczler (1895-1965) collection, London, acquired in the 1950's.
