The tomb of Queen Tabiry, wife of Piye, produced this amulet of a wing, naked goddess. As with many amulets of this type, the wings bend sharply downward. Uraeus serpents adorn the arms, and their bodies continue down the back side of the wings in incised decoration. The goddress's crown consists of cows' horns, sun-disk, and double plumes; these occur on too many goddesses to allow a secure identification of the deity represented here.
The Olmec colossal heads are at least seventeen monumental stone representations of human heads sculpted from large basalt boulders. The heads date from at least before 900 BC and are a distinctive feature of the Olmec civilization of ancient Mesoamerica (Gulf Coast of Mexico). Believed by most African American historians to be of images of African explorers that came to that area.
Etruscan Votive Statuette. Terracotta. 400-300 BC. Worshippers with physical ailments appeased the gods with small terracotta models of the afflicted body part. The dedicator perhaps suffered from stomach or intestinal problems. The model is a schematic version of the human anatomy rather than an exact replica, but the relative placement, size, and shape of organs is generally correct. Source: The Getty Museum
