Female Figurines from ancient Egypt: Function and Form
From the Predynastic to the Greco-Roman period, the ancient Egyptians created small figurines of women. They were crafted in a variety of mediums, often in an abstracted or stylised form. Initially included in burials but evidence suggests from the New Kingdom onwards they were also used in the home and a limited number were left as votives in temples. This lecture will examine the evolving form and function of these charismatic representations.
