Iberian Bronze Votive Female Worshipper - 400 BC

An Iberian bronze votive figure, dating to the 5th - 4th century BC.

Depicting a standing female worshipper, wearing a veil and long gown, her hands raised in prayer. The figure's facial features and breasts modelled in raised relief.

This bronze statuette would have been dedicated, as a gift to the gods, in a hilltop sanctuary in south central Spain. Unlike many ancient bronzes, Iberian figures of this kind represent individual worshippers rather than grand cult statues or local deities.

For a figure of this type, see 1933.133 at the Harvard Art Museum.
