Greek Terracotta Figure of a Votaress: 5th Century B.C. Approximately 8.75 inches high. Intact with no repairs/restoration. Mold-made. Designed with a trapezoidal base. The votaress may represent the Greek goddess Demeter. She is wearing a pleated chiton and a himation that is draped over her shoulders. She wears a slight smile and is holding a piglet, which is probably a votive offering, against her breasts with both hands. Nice eye appeal. Mounted on a custom wooden base. Ex: German private collection.
