1000-500 BC Female Mesopotamian Figure Terracotta figurines of standing nude women are the most common type of Babylonian votive. Sometimes the figure clasps her hands in front of her, as seen here, while in other examples the figure holds her breasts or suckles a baby. These mass-produced fertility figurines served as votive offerings or as charms to aid in conception and childbirth. In Search of Ancient Treasure: 40 Years of Collecting. The Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore. 1978.
