San Cristoforo di Gordana

This probably female stele statue is missing all the top part . It was found in 1948 in a small plain called “ San Cristoforo plain “ near the village of San Cristoforo in Gordana (Pontremoli , MS ) , when a chestnut grove was dug up to sow grain on the land .  Even though the statue is a fragment , the shape of the arms is that of the B group monuments , and it would therefore date to the Eneolithic Age ( between 3400/3300 and 2300/2000 b.C. ) .  The body is rectangular and the arms are in relief and slightly bent at the elbows ; the hands are shown as parallel lines .
It is kept at the Pontremoli Museum .
