Pre-Dynastic Female Figurine Egyptian. Shrouded in mystery, the purpose of this archetypal figure is uncertain. The raised arms suggest either celebration or mourning while the emphasis on sexual characteristics suggests a connection with fertility. Its discovery in a tomb may connect it with rebirth. Indeed, figures of this type have been interpreted as dancers, worshippers, mourners, symbols of resurrection, mother images or goddesses.
