Replica Greek Statue from Cycladic Art Museum, Greece

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

This statue on a base was acquired from the Museum of Modern Art’s museum shop as a probable coop alliance with the Cycladic Art Museum in Greece.  I have been able to find information on the original piece but I was told that the broken foot is also on the original.

Sculptures (or better named idols or figurines) like this replica are from the Cycladic people dating back to around 2500 BC in some of the islands of the Aegean Sea.  The images were thought to be used in funeral ceremonies and found in graves.  Larger figures were sometimes broken so that only part of the statue was buried.  That might explain the missing foot on this statue.
