Small woman figurine holding a dog

Greek Art, c. IV century BCE

REF No.10075 Terracotta
H 12 cm

Small figurine portraying a woman holding a small dog on her lap. The mold is hollow, and certain parts of the body were molded, whilst others were added on. The body is schematic since the goal of the artist was to create a statue that resembled a certain someone, thanks to their attributes. The body does not detach from the seat and we can see her feet peeking out from under her gown.
The object was most likely to have been created with the purpose of being a funerary or votive statue.
