Grave offerings of the Early Cycladic I and II period from Naxos. 3200 - 2300 B.C.

6140.4 Ceramic 'frying-pan' with incised representation

6140.9 : Anthropomorphic Figurine made of parian marble of 'Louros' type.

Grave offerings from Naxos cemeteries reflect a rich society with access to
luxurious prestige items. Vases and figurines of marble from Paros indicate
communication with the neighbough island. Stone and metal jewellery
were placed in the grave. Small clay jars contained colours for body and
face decoration. An elaborate lamp reveals a luxurious manner of lightening and the remains of a jug 5
indicate import or production of olive oil. All items in their use as grave offerings acquire symbolic dimension.
Figurines, however, have primarily votive or ritual character.
