The Titeux Dancer - Item #41

$ 80.00

8.25 Inches High x 4 Inches Wide x 3 Inches Deep

This piece was once thought to be a Tanagra Figurine, which were terracotta pieces found in excavating the ancient City of Tanagra. Numerous studies have determined that this statuette was created earlier, around 375-350 B.C.E., and was made in the historical Attic region of Greece which encompassed Athens. The subject may be a dancer, bride, or nymph, but in any case, its function and meaning are still debated today. "Titeux" is the name of the sculpture's first owner after its discovery in 1846 at the Acropolis.
