This figurine with a rectangular body adorned with necklaces belongs to a series well attested at that time. The arms, as well as the facial features, are stylized by furrows engraved with cupules. The ears are represented by pierced protuberances.
Deposited in the tombs, these figurines must be interpreted as a female symbol of fertility.
Their shape and decoration suggest that they could reproduce in miniature wooden cult statues placed in sanctuaries. As such, they could also be worn as pendants by women.
