A little history about the chatting woman Amlash

This terracotta female figure is a vase that could have contained cereals or dates for example. It probably belongs to the 2,000-year-old “Amlash” culture. It is named after the site where it was found in the 1950s, north of the current borders of Iran. This object is quite original because of its shape and especially because of the character’s gestures. The Amlash cultures developed an important craft of utilitarian objects inspired by nature. But most of the objects have neutral representations without expression, whether they are animals or human figures. What is developed is the functionality of the object. Here the woman is staged, which gives her that dynamic feeling. This is why archaeologists have nicknamed her ‘the chatting woman’, echoing her humorous position.
