Rappresentazioni del sacro femminile. I busti femminili "di tipo agrigentino" in contesto

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The contribution examines the category of female fictile busts from a contextual point of view, focusing attention on two of the most significant cases known to date: the rupestrian sanctuary of Agrigento and the sanctuary of the cd. altar of Demeter in Lipari. The comparative examination allows to highlight both the recurrences and the specific connotations that the formula assumes in the ritual practice of each sanctuary.
