Votive Figure

650-550 BC

Cypro-Archaic II

Found on Lapethos

The cave in which the figurines were discovered may have been a sanctuary connected with a goddess connected with childbirth, though the varied attitudes of the votaries can be found in other shrines throughout the island in this period.
