A finely moulded Old Babylonian fired terracotta figurine depicting a nude fertility goddess nursing a child. She is depicted in the iconic Old Babylonian style, featuring realistic facial features and a plump body that evokes a naturalistic sensuality. She gazes forward gently, holding an infant in her arms and wearing a mantle that falls onto her shoulders. The reverse side is unmodelled, and the figurine is supplied with a purpose-made display platform.
Date: Circa 1894-1595 BC
