dc.description.abstract"This article will outline the results of a thorough examination of the statuette, including a formal analysis and comparison with other ancient pieces as well as detailed technical investigations of the composition of the metal. Together, these examinations show that there are some significant stylistic and compositional problems with this Missouri statuette that raise serious doubts about its authenticity. The article proposes that instead of being ancient, the statuette is a modern forgery made in the early part of the twentieth century. Finally, by placing this particular piece in a larger contextual framework of fakes and authenticity, this study will conclude with some insights into the purpose and conceptual role of modern forgeries of ancient works."--Third paragraph.eng
