Early Cycladic II.

Ca. 2600 – 2300 BC.

Height: 5 3/4 in. (14.6 cm).

The role and meaning of these figures in Cycladic culture is not known. While they have been found almost exclusively in graves, it is not clear whether they were made specifically for burials. The Spedos type, named after an Early Cycladic cemetery on Naxos, was widely distributed throughout the Cyclades and beyond.

Formerly with the Rassla Foundation, Zurich, Dr. Giancarlo Ligabue (1931-2015), acquired from Pino Donati, Arte Classica, Lugano, Switzerland, September, 1970.
