Wonders of early civilisations: figurines from the Cyclades, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, the Oxus and Indus valleys, Iran, Iberia, etc. ‘Idols’ does not seem the right descriptive for these as we only guess at their function; but their small, highly concentrated presences give each of them an extraordinary power. Superbly illustrated.
An entrancing writer turns her attention to the mysterious submerged land that once linked Britain to Europe, teasing understanding in a very personal way from conversations and small finds on her walks.
Gorgeous, desirable anthropomorphic figures from the Oxus, Indus, Anatolia, Iberia, Cyclades etc. Each one is beautifully pictured, with a scholarly description. Most of the artefacts belong to private collections.
