Description

“The Nurse”.

Clay figurine of a woman sitting on a stool with an infant in her arms.  Sesklo (Thessaly), 4800-4500 BC.

The group depicts a mother and infant just as she prepares to nurse it. It is a unique work. It breathes vigour and simplicity, but also sensitivity and tenderness.  The original find is at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

All paint decorations are made replicating methods used by potters of the particular period.

Measurements: The figurine: 17cm h.
The figurine is installed on a black wooden base 10x10x2 cm h.

Each figurine is individually hand made, imperfections are to be expected and no two sculptures are alike and can never be reproduced to the exact same effect. They are one of a kind and unique.

Shipped in presentation gift box.

Handmade in Kastoria.
