Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In this MA thesis terracotta figures and figurines from Crete, the Cyclades and the Greek mainland were investigated. The terracottas which were studied belong to the Early Bronze until Late Bronze Age period. Based on criteria such as context (religious or not religious), attitude of the terracottas, clothing, decoration .... were used as a mean to identify whether those terracottas represent gods or goddesses.
