'The book debunks several long-held and unsubstantiated beliefs in the literature, and reorients our thinking about images of women and children towards a context-specific approach.' Allison Thomason, Near Eastern Archaeology
This book is a study of the woman-and-child motif - known as the kourotrophos - as it appeared in the Bronze Age eastern Mediterranean. Budin argues that, contrary to many current beliefs, the image was not a universal symbol of maternity or a depiction of a mother goddess.See all Product description
