Golden figurine of naked woman found in Danish field

A golden figurine of a naked woman, probably dating back to the 6 century A.D., has been found in a field on the Danish island of Bornholm.

The golden woman appears to be either standing on her toes or jumping up athletically with the insteps stretched. And above the elegantly shaped feet, the calves and knees are clearly visible.

When viewing the figurine from the front, it is tempting to associate the naked, buxom, athletic female figure with fertility and health.

Close-up of the golden figurine. Note the belt and the rings around the feet and the arms.

Remarkably, the back side has ten prominent ‘teeth’, something that has never been seen before.
