Our Price: £0.00


c.5700-4200 B.C. A rare and nice quality segment from a Vinca Culture Early Neolithic period decorated pottery votive figure. The Vinca Culture were an advanced Early Neolithic race largely inhabiting the Balkans, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece; they were reknown for producing pottery anthropormorhic votive statuettes and figures presumably for placement in a temple or place of worship. This robust segment features a good deal of hand embellished punched and scribed decoration on several of its faces and even feint traces of original pigment in places so obviously once part of a larger painted figure. A good stable segment measuring 55mm x 27mm x 30mm, a good value piece of Early Neolithic decorative pottery.
