The idol of Vršac, Ludoš, Middle Bronze Age

The idol of Vršac stands out from related Bronze Age figurines, both in size and in the details of the engraved ornaments, which represent an almost realistic depiction of jewellery and clothing. The upper part of the body is slightly thrown back with the hands laid on the hips, which gives the whole representation an impression of the sublime-divine.











Figurine, Stubarlija, Bronze Age

The figurine was found in an urn, with the remains of the cremated deceased. Due to this fact, it is associated with the cult of the dead. Indirectly, such figurines refer to the cult of fertility, symbolizing the supreme female deity of fertility and vegetation, and relate to the ritual practice of the Eastern Mediterranean cultural circle and the Mycenaean world.
