This lovely abstract form has been carved in Greece for us in Greek marble and mounted on a dark marble base. She is white and smooth and has minimal incisions on her front, indicating the pubic area.
Original Cycladic figurines, carved in marble, were produced during the third millennium BC. They are remarkable for their abstract simplicity, which is believed to have inspired later artists such as Picasso, Modigliani and Moore.
Cycladic art originates from the The Cyclades, a group of islands in the southwestern Aegean, comprising some thirty small islands, including Naxos and Paros, which were known for the quality of their marble. The ancient Greeks called these islands the Kyklades, imagining them as a circle (kyklos) around the sacred island of Delos, the site of the holiest sanctuary to Apollo and the island thought to be the birthplace of the god and his twin sister Artemis.
