Very large numbers of female figurines have been found at various sanctuaries and on other sites in Cyprus. In this volume the figures have been divided into three main groups: handmade/wheelmade figures (Vassos Karageorghis), figures with a wheelmade body and moulded face (Vassos Karageorghis) and entirely mould-made figures (Jacqueline Karageorghis). A wide variety of postures is again evident; the figures may have their arms uplifted or be carrying a vase or lamp or holding an infant or an offering. Tambourine and lyre players also occur, together with figurines of women engaged in various x tasks such as grinding or preparing bread. It is anticipated that an index of museum/collection inventory numbers for the entire series of volumes will be included in this volume, the last to be published.
