Golden figurine of naked woman found in Danish field. Published on June 24th, 2013 | by Sevaan Franks A golden figurine of a naked woman, probably dating back to the 6 century A.D., has been found in a field on the Danish island of Bornholm.
The golden woman appears to be either standing on her toes or jumping up athletically with the insteps stretched. And above the elegantly shaped feet, the calves and knees are clearly visible. When viewing the figurine from the front, it is tempting to associate the naked, buxom, athletic female figure with fertility and health. Close-up of the golden figurine. Remarkably, the back side has ten prominent ‘teeth’, something that has never been seen before.

Thanks for your question!
Art is a really big topic and can easily feel intimidating. Humans have been making art and artifacts for a very very long time and in order to understand what that art meant to the people who made it, we need to learn about their culture and how it is different from our own. This makes studying art complex but also really interesting. We are still building the art content but am sure you can find things here that will interest you. Don't feel like you need to start at… (more) the beginning and cover everything in order.
