Sitting nude female figurine, Bouqras, 6400-5900 BC. The text in the museum calls it a representation of a mother-goddess and indicates that clay being the material most important both for farming and the creation of for instance pottery there was a relationship between such a figurine and religion, “before male gods became significant”.
