A stylised female votive plaque of a fertility idol from the Syrio-Hittite period. Her features are prominent, a large beak-like protruding nose takes centre stage complete with bulging eyes and blue pigmented pupils. The body displays etched clothing in the form of a dress and a large necklace. The figurine’s breasts are exposed and extend out. The reverse is unworked, unfortunately the lower half of the plaque is now missing.
Date: Circa 2nd – 3rd Millennium BC
