“Stargazer”

OBJECT NARRATIVES

DESCRIPTION

How often do we look at the stars? The “Stargazer” has been observing them continuously for thousands of years!

This is a rare type of figurine rendering the human form. It is known as a “Stargazer” because of the strong backwards tilt of the head, with the eyes looking upwards.

This figurine was found at the beginning of the 20th century at Kilia, on the peninsula of Kallipolis (Gallipoli) in Eastern Thrace. With a long production period, figurines of this type date to the Middle and Late Neolithic era (end of the 5th millennium – middle of the 4th millennium BC).
