It is not uncommon for ancient artifacts to seem mysterious, out of context in the modern world. Progress had rendered many objects obsolete; at best they offer a faint clue to a vanished world without function in the modern age. Yet when we gaze upon this charming little nude, there is no mistaking her timeless message. She represents the eternally feminine, something vital and essential that has changed little through history. She connects us in a direct and understandable way with the time and the place that created her.
