Neolithic Female Figurines of Asia Minor:
Cognitive archeology and archeology of religions have in the last two decades shed new light on a number of phenomena that apply to figurines.
These figurines date from the Neolithic. They have for the past one hundred years been the objects of morphologic, substantive and symbolic analyzes. We find them practically in the all-Neolithic societies from Iran to Mesopotamia, Balkans, Greece…
Later on, they evolved into some of the most beautiful statues of the goddesses in the ancient Hellenic, Persian and Egyptian age. And still later on, they appear in mysticism as the divine manifestation of god.
