Venelia III

It is a stele statue head found in 1995 at “Pescara” near the village of Monti ( Licciana Nardi , MS) in a heap of stones , probably discarded from building sites or road building . It belongs to group B and therefore could date to the Eneolithic Age ( between 3400/3300 and 2300/2000 b.C. ) . It is semicircular , shaped like a low arch with expansions at the sides ; the partly broken neck is rounded . The U-shaped face is missing the top part ; at the sides there are two little cups .  A necklace made up of 7 elements is traced round the throat .
It is now at the Restoration Centre of the Soprintendenza Archeologica for Toscana .
