c.6th/5th Century B.C. An excellent mounted red ware terracotta stattuette of the Goddess Demeter found at Corinth, Central Greece in the early 20th Century and from an old West Country collection. Demeter was the Goddess of the Harvest and these figures were no doubt produced and placed in home shrines for prayer so that Demeter granted the people a favourable harvest. Demeter is depicted in typical poise, wearing a veiled head dress and seated upon a throne with her hands resting in her lap. Probably once painted with pigments (now gone), feint barely noticeable repair to neck otherwise Demeter is totally intact and in very nice condition for her great age. Attractively mounted on a magonany display plinth, an appealing Ancient Greek stattuette, 102mm tall (122mm on plinth) x 34mm wide x 52mm deep
