Sainsbury Centre exhibits figurines of Teleorman
The British exhibition brings together over 100 prehistoric ceramic figurines some of them quite small, from Japan, Romania, Macedonia, Albania and the UK, Alexandria-based Museum’s spokesperson Corina Iordan told. The exhibition also shows contemporary art works, and pictures of the Japanese Archipelago and the Balkan area.
According to her, the ancient figurines represent clay moulding traditions, from antipodal areas, and experts think their function was to enhance cattle’s fertility and bring rich crops. The Unearthed Exhibition is open till August 29.
