Prehistoric, Neolithic Terracotta Bust with Slightly inclined Head and a Fascinatingly Abstractive Style.
Extremely rare and interesting posture of the head showing a movement in a period when most of the figurine are stricktly static and schematic!

A lovely abstractive style typical for this early and still pretty unknown epoch.
