Large Female Figure - Works of Art - Ariadne Galleries

Provenance: Formerly from a New England Private Collection. Published: Antiquities, Sotheby's, New York, 23 June 1989, lot 115.  

Preserving the thighs and lower torso, this fragment once belonged to a female figure of considerable scale. The tops of the thighs are curved, creating a sunken pubic area that merges with the top of the broad leg cleft, with a lightly incised horizontal line low on the abdomen. For other similar examples, see pl. 28 in P. Getz-Gentle, Personal Styles in Early Cycladic Sculpture and no. 99 in C. Doumos, Cycladic Art, Ancient Sculpture and Ceramics of the Aegean from the N.P. Goulandris Collection.
