Seller: artancientltd (9,295) 99.7%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391586890671 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Ancient Iron Age Cypriot terracotta head, dating to the Cypro-Archaic I-II period,circa 650–600 BC.With its pointed chin and almost ghostly suggestion of eyes, this Cypro-Archaic pottery head bears a close resemblance to similar figures found in the great sanctuary of Agia Irini. Why they were dedicated and to which god is unclear; however, they were clearly intended as gifts, and deposited in great numbers, perhaps to win favour or in thanks.In this piece, we can see the simple but confident modelling that betrays an artist working with great speed and accuracy. In ancient times he may have been lost amongst a sea of similar figures, but he now stands alone for us to admire. Height: 5 1/4 inchesProvenance: Irish private collection, acquired 1950s.
