Anthropomorphic idol of Kusura type, Anatolia, middle of the third millennium BC

This intact statuette, whose form is simplified to the extreme, evokes a body surmounted by a head on a long neck. These "idols", also called "idols-violin", are divided into several types, of which this is probably the most widespread. Produced on the Anatolian coast, these works are contemporary with the idols of the Cyclades. Comparative Bibliography: See J. Thimme, Kunst und Kultur der Kykladeninseln im 3. Jahrtausend v. Chr., Karlsruhe 1976, no. 487
