This sensuous little figure with her finely detailed hair and jewels evokes the eternally feminine. She is a spiritual sister to the Astarte of the Babylonians, the Isis of the Egyptians, the Venus of the classical world. Centuries ago, this voluptuous figure was placed in an ancient tomb to guarantee the continuity of life. Her tangible sexuality still speaks clearly across all barriers of time and culture.
