Parthian alabaster female figure, 100 B.C. – 100 A.D.

The pieces of the Persian Empire are not very heavy as they were transhumant peoples, animal lovers, represented in a real and mythological way, as well as great fighters and defenders of their territory. It can be said that this art was a functional craft, embellished their lives and customs. This feminine figurine, surely created for a powerful woman, represents a deity, with the chest marked and the hand in the belly. It also has a high headdress that denotes its importance.
