3000-2000 BCE Description This figure stands with feet together. It is unclear whether the arms, suggested by a raising of the material, bend at the elbow and embrace the chest or whether they continue downwards to the knees.

10 - CYCLADIC animal KAPSALA figures show a tendency of slenderness, especially in the legs, which are much longer and lack the powerful musculature suggested in earlier forms of the sculptures. The shoulders and hips are much narrower as well, and the figures themselves are very small in size, rarely larger than 30cm in length.

Κατά την τρίτη χιλιετία π.Χ., σύμφωνα με τις αρχαιολογικές ενδείξεις, στις Κυκλάδες υπήρχαν καλά οργανωμένες και σχετικά πολυπληθείς κοινότητες με ανεπτυγμένες μεταξύ τους τη θαλάσσια επικοινωνία και το εμπόριο.
