The photograph of the Aegean snake goddess seems like a fake. Originating from Near Eastern and Mesopotamia, the female faience figurines have different qualities than what the photograph shows. Many of the figurines were forged in the early 1920's and I wonder if this photograph is an example of one.


This type of figurines are furthermore particularly intriguing, because of the high resemblance they excibit with modern sculptures (e.g. in Henry Moore's works).

Er...couldn't Moore simply have been inspired by this Aegean art? Where's the intrigue? (The above quote is also poorly written.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:13, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
