This clay figurine from Grabovac is interesting because it belongs stylistically to the most highly developed, "baroque" phase of the Vinča sculpture. This phase is characterized by a realistic, three-dimensional and circumstantial treatment of the human figure.
They usually represent a seated or standing woman dressed in richly ornamented clothes and with prominent female attributes. This is not accidental, for the woman represents a fertility symbol, the Earth Mother, the main deity of the Neolithic farmers. People used various magic rites in order to propitiate the higher powers and ensure bountiful crops. It is therefore not surprising that such a large number of these figurines have been found on the Neolithic sites. The skirts and other garments in which these figurines are dressed represent a good source of information on the clothing of prehistoric women.
