Ancient Greek Classical Terracotta Sculpture, 450 BC
A large and rare example of Classical Greek art. Dating to circa 450 BC this beautiful and large naturalistic pottery sculpture of a cow would have once served in a temple in ancient Greece as a Fertility Votive. She is shown with full udders and teats, her tail raised. She has flared nostrils and her mouth is partly open, head turned to the right. A very large, naturalistic terracotta with pathos. The classical Greeks were expert sculptors with terracotta as well as stone and marble, this being a glaring example of their expertise. A piece such as this was likely molded in sections, then finished by hand. Provenance: German private collection, 2008. Previously in an English private collection and acquired in the 1970's.
