Author(s): TAKAOĞLU, Turan , NANOGLOU, Stratos
Volume: 47 Date: 2021
This work offers an assessment of a small assemblage of anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figurines from the Early Chalcolithic (phase II) and the Middle Chalcolithic (phase III) settlements at Gülpınar in northwestern Anatolia. The main goal is to place the figurine assemblage from both phases within its wider context and try to understand the repercussions of choices made in Gülpınar regarding the making and use of these objects. The assemblage from both phases II and III at Gülpınar complements the general discussions on the use and meaning of figurines within a wide geographical area that includes western Anatolia, Aegean, and the Balkans.
