Moncigoli I

This female stele statue was discovered at the beginning of the last century ( around 1910 ) in the Piana di Monciglioli ( Fivizzano ,MS) and then kept for a long time in a farmhouse . Its main features are those of the A group stele statues : rectangular body and semicircular head , and it therefore probably dates to the Eneolithic  Age( between 3400/3300 and 2300/2000 b.C. ) . The concave face is U- shaped and the nose and button-shaped eyes are in relief . The shoulders are barely defined and the collar bone in relief is slightly curved at the centre . The arms are lightly bent at the elbows and the round breasts are in relief .
