An ancient Eskimo ivory figure Okvik/Old Bering Sea I, of classic stylized form, the body a gently curving plane, the broad facial panel bisected by an aquiline nose merging to a tapering forehead, with grooved mouth and similarly rendered eyes, a rich deep brown patina overall
Neolithic Triangular "Idol," 3500 BC | Anatolian, Syrian. Hardly more than a modeled pebble; despite that, one can easily distinguish the silhouette of a seated human figure, a simplified form of the "Mother Goddess." Carved from a small stone to and given a triangular, thick shape, as if it were a steatopygic figure (of large buttocks) in relief, but sculpted on all sides. These figures were revered in a very vast and varied region, ranging from the Near East to Central Western Europe.
