Terracotta statuette of a seated woman

Greek, Rhodian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The figure represents a well-established type in both the small-scale terracottas and large stone sculpture of Eastern Greece. Her seated pose and the garment covering the back of her head and body suggest that she may be a goddess.
