An elegant terracotta protome depicting a lovely goddess with well-modeled facial features wearing a long headdress. A protome is a type of bust made by pressing a thin layer of terracotta into a single mold. These were first made in Rhodes, but from the early fifth century BCE onwards they spread throughout Greece. Originally, this piece would have been painted (to see an example of a painted protome, see the terracotta protome of Dionysos at the British Museum). A lovely example that speaks to the importance of women as religious figures in Magna Graecia. Perforated at top. Custom stand.
