Boeotian idol

This idol, shown seated with arms outstretched and slightly bent forward, is decorated throughout with geometric
patterns painted in dark red. The face is represented by a simple pinch of the clay evoking the nose and giving the
impression of a bird’s profile. She also wears a volute headdress (polo) made up of three long sides falling on the
shoulders and on the back. This is a characteristic production of Boeotia, a Greek region located in the north of
Attica which most often accompanied the deceased.

Greek art, Archaic period, circa 6th century BC
