This serene columnar sculpture may represent a goddess or votary. Conceived frontally with a flat back, the figure holds a flower to her breast with her right hand, while grasping another object at her left side. She wears an elegantly designed headcloth and necklace of Near Eastern origin. Her almond-shaped eyes and smiling expression, however, derive from Greek Archaic sculptural traditions. This mixture of styles reflects the varied political and cultural allegiances of Cyprus during the Archaic period.
