Wearing only some jewelry and an elaborate headdress, this lovely woman appears before us naked and unblusing. Here and there, traces of bright red paint suggest her colorful past. The epitome of feminine beauty, this charming figure seems to belong to an ancient tradition of fertility and abundance. Does she represent a real woman, perhaps the wife of concubine of the chieftain in whose tomb she was buried? Or is she a Goddess, offering the promise of eternal rebirth? Her mystery is part of her charm. She reminds us that the progress of civilization changes few of life's fundamentals. - (PF.1967)
