Cycladic Thinker Statue Like Rodin The Thinker Early Greek Adaptation Abstract 6.5HPN# G-022S
Dating from 3200 to 2000 BC, the Cycladic Islands of Greece were home to an early civilization who sculpted figurines with smooth surfaces from marble. The majority of Cycladic Figurines show women, nude with the arms folded over the belly and the long feet, soles slopping downwards, possibly an indication of a society who worshipped the Mother Goddess. (PN G-022S)
This statue is atypical of many traditional statue found from the Cyclades. As such, it may not actually be based on an ancient reproduction. We are aware of a Cycladic Harpist who has some similarities, but do not know of the museum where this statue resides, or its provenance.
It is, however, a fun interpretation of an old type of statue in an intellectual pose similar to Rodin's The Thinker!
- Cycladic Thinker is made from crushed stone and resin, with an antique finish.
- Measures 6.5 in H x 2.5 in L x 3.5 in W. Weighs 1.5 lbs.
