Iberian lady from an unknown site in Murcia Dated between the 4th -2nd centuries BC

This piece is a bas-relief limestone sculpture. It shows a woman standing facing us with her arms folded over her body. The rear has not been worked.

Her clothing - which has been sculpted in detail - consists of a fine short-sleeved tunic which reaches down to her ankles. The lady wears a jewel around her neck, possibly a turquoise.

It is very similar to some of the sculpted figurines left as ex-votos in the sanctuary of Torreparedones (Castro del Río, Cordoba) or Cerro de los Santos (Montealegre del Castillo, Albacete).
