These are from my own collection.

A group of Archaic Greek terracotta  votive objects. Probably Corinthian.

This group comes from an old collection and were most
likely excavated together.


They have managed to remain together for over 2500 years
and  I would very much prefer that they
remain together.



Hence I offer them as a group and would want a
(plausible) undertaking by any prospective purchaser that the group would not
be broken up and the pieces dispersed individually.



 



Such votives are associated with sanctuaries devoted to
Demeter and her daughter Kore , otherwise known as Persephone.



Demeter was the goddess of the grain, agriculture,
harvest, growth, and nourishment, who presided over grains and the fertility of
the earth.

daughter)  85mm

Archaic Greek



6th – 5th century BC



 



Ex my own collection. Acquired in London over 35 years
ago.

I really want to keep the group together, not selling these individually.



Very useful
and interesting resource
