Pre-Dynastic Figurine Pendant - Egyptian, from the collection of The Brooklyn Museum
Shrouded in mystery, the purpose of this archetypal figure is uncertain. The raised arms suggest either celebration or mourning while the emphasis on sexual characteristics suggests a connection with fertility. Its discovery in a tomb may connect it with rebirth. Indeed, figures of this type have been interpreted as dancers, worshippers, mourners, symbols of resurrection, mother images or goddesses.
