Gold Female Fertility Figure Necklace

Gold Female Fertility Figure Necklace

  • $ 3200

Shrouded in mystery, the purpose of this archetypal figure is uncertain. The raised arms suggest either celebration or mourning while the emphasis on sexual characteristics suggests a connection with fertility. Its discovery in a tomb may connect it with rebirth. Indeed, figures of this type have been interpreted as dancers, worshipers, mourners, symbols of resurrection, mothers, or goddesses. From the Brooklyn Museum's Egyptian collection. Gold-plated pendant on a black cord.

Dimensions: 134 in. H x 1 in. W x 32 in. L
