Terracotta: AN1968.1622

Object: Fragment of the feet of a figurine

Period: Samarra Culture

Dimensions: L: 5cm. W: 3.5cm. H: 2cm.

Region: Iraq

Find Spot: Choga Mami (C.M. 14)

Description: broken off a standing female(?); figurine; handmodelled; baked; cream slip with pink core; no details indicated; the disproportionate size suggests an attempt to give the figure a base upon which it would be self-supporting, counter-weighting the large bottoms (cf. Oates, J. 1968, pl. XXXe-f).

Reference: Moorey (2004) 13
