Neolithic terracotta idol, Iran, 2nd millennium B.C.

Ancient cultures used idols to help them survive, to achieve their goals, to finally protect them. These small terracotta idols are meant to be carried comfortably with the person. Their typology is curious since they are represented with the schematic face in the form of a prominent aquiline nose and very rounded eyes. This character had to be an important position since it is represented an incomplete band that crosses his chest.
