Neolithic Fertility Figurine Gold Pendant - Small
(incl. VAT - excludes shipping costs)
The Idol of Pomos is a prehistoric sculpture from the Cypriot village of Pomos. It dates back to the Chalcolithic period, around the 30th century BC. The pagan sculpture represents a woman with her arms spread and is a cult image representing a fertility or mother goddess. These idols were worn as amulets around the neck, just as this idol wears a small copy of itself. Over one hundred cruciform figures have been discovered which were made in southwestern Cyprus during the period 3000-2500 B.C.
Each pendant is handcrafted by two brothers, George and Panagiotis, in the picturesque village of Lefkara, in a workshop they have been running since 1968. Our chains are made in Italy.
