A beautiful Cycladic idol of timeless beauty and form showing a man & a woman merged in one shape.

The Cycladic civilization of the Aegean Sea flourished at about the same time as the early Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations (c. 3000-2000 B.C.) and is considered the forerunner of the first truly European civilization. (read more about Cycladic art…)

The sculpture produced by the artisans of the Cyclades islands was unique compared to the art being produced by the Egyptians and Mesopotamians.

These sculptures, commonly called Cycladic idols, were often used as grave offerings, which points to the obvious role of religion in society.
