Catalog – Prehistoric ladies from Macedonia


Tumba Madzari 6 Tumba Madzari 4 Tumba Madzari 3

The abundance of terracotta figurines depicting women from prehistory. i.e. from the Neolithic and Eneolithic, discovered in the Republic Macedonia, have imposed the idea of conjoining the most of them together and displaying them in an exhibition titled Prehistoric Macedonian Ladies. It embraces an attempt to present, in a single display, archaeological artifacts that are inter-related merely by one concept – the woman. The exhibition aims to elucidate a segment of the rich spiritual life of the prehistoric populace settling these territories from the sixth until the third millennia BC. This collection has been compiled from excavations carried out throughout the sixty years of Macedonian archaeology.
