Female figurine, circa 470-450 BCE, polychrome terracotta. This molded figurine has acquired relief. The features of the face and the details of the garment are naturalistic, even if the whole remains schematic and linear. It constitutes an intermediate milestone between the flat figures of the previous century and the more sculptural statuettes of the 4th century BCE. In particular, the lack of detailed hands, recall the older figurines.
