Ancient Greek Terracotta Head of a Veiled Goddess. Hellenistic Period, 350-100 BC

The Goddess is shown veiled, wearing elaborate stephane (crown), hair ornament and earrings. Rather than being a fragment of a larger statue, this head was made as a stand-alone piece, almost certainly for a votive purpose. When archaeologists and scholars talk of votive artifacts, they refer to the ancient belief that one could "win favour" with a God/Goddess by the offering of a gift. Thus, this head would have been commissioned and then placed in an ancient shrine to the relevant Goddess in thanks for, or in anticipation of a favor. Height on stand: 4 3/4"; Height of head alone: 2 3/4". #gr0344: $525 SOLD
