During this talk, Khaled will examine the main purposes of these figurines in their different contexts (ritual, daily life, and funerary) or in other words, to ascertain what the relationship is between these female figurines and their find-spots. Who were the women depicted and who dedicated those figurines? What is the meaning of the female figurines for the different archaeological contexts in which they are found and what are their ritual purposes?
