Minoan Goddess Figurine Replica, 1300 - 1200 BC, Nafplion Museum (32cm)
Female Idol believed to be a Minoan Goddess found at the House of Idols in the Lower Castle of Tyrins, Mycenae. Original currently on display at the Nafplion Museum.
This fine museum quality replica is a unique "one of a kind" ceramic reproduction made from clay originating from the same fields where the original was found to ensure the same "look and feel" as the actual figurine. All paint decorations were also made replicating methods used by potters of the particular period. This is why this item is hard to distinguish from the original and requires the attached traditional lead stamp (shown as part of the description tag) that identifies it as a reproduction made by an authorized artist. Like the actual museum displays each piece is tagged with its description.
Handmade and Imported from Greece.
