Three main chapters are devoted to the figurines of the Late Cypriote II-III, Cypro-Geometric I and Cypro-Geometric II-III periods. In Chapter I the Base-ring and Plain ware figurines comprise standing nude female figures with bird-like or more normal faces, seated female figures and a small number of horse-and-rider and animal figures. Few complete figurines of Cypro-Geometric I date have been found, but these include female figures with uplifted arms, a type which may have been introduced to Cyprus from Crete in the llth century B.C. Small male figures also occur. Continuity of the LC III tradition is apparent. Models of inanimate objects such as a chair, a number of ships and several sanctuaries also occur. In the last main phase covered in this volume the most important categories are helmeted human figures, horse-and-rider figures and various animals and birds.
