Fragment of Cypriot stone female statue, 5th-3rd century B.C.

DESCRIPTION
The unique geographical position of the island of Cyprus, situated in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean, makes it a natural point of connection between the cultures of the three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa. Furthermore, due to the continuous dominations that have taken place on the island, a dense network of commercial and cultural relations was created between the different civilizations that exercised their influence on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean. Beautifully modeled female sculpture. The ancient Greeks were magnificent sculptors, as well as representing gods and mythological elements used to make sculptures for the wealthy acquirers. This beautiful young woman belonged to a sculpture of which we preserve a bust, we see her naked from the waist up with her right hand on her belly and the mane on her shoulders.
