Mycenean Goddess replica of the "Psi" family named due to the resemblance of the shape to the Greek letter Psi. Several of these figurines were discovered in Mycenean tombs and believed to be God offerings. They also believed to symbolize a mother goddess. They are dating back to 1400 - 1200 BC and this particular doll is currently on display at the National Archaelogican museum of Athens. Several others from the family are on display in other International Museums.
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 piece. 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.
