<br />
This impressive Cycladic statue is distinguished by its clear outlines and perfect proportions as well as plasticity of form. A sense of movement is introduced into the staue by its left hip being raised and a slight inclination of the head to the right.

It was probably a cult statue and stood at the shrine of a cult goddess.
