Goddess sculpture found in Turkish shipwreck

A 2,700-year-old terracotta sculpture of a goddess has been found in a shipwreck off the coast of Turkey.

A ceramic sculpture, which is said to be the biggest one in the history of Turkish underwater history, has been discovered off the coast of the Bozburun neighborhood in the western province of Mu?la’s Marmaris district.

The 2,700-year-old sculpture found during examinations in a ship wreckage, which was unearthed last year in November, belonged to a Cypriot goddess.

The works, carried out by Dokuz Eylül University (DEU) Marine Science and Technology Institute, unearthed the sculpture 43 meters under water, and is reported to date back to the archaic period.
