Бесплатный доступ

Despite its rarity, wooden sculpture of the Urals has been the subject of numerous publications and scientific researches. The anthropomorphic sculptures made of stone, clay, and engraved anthropomorphic images are less known. Currently, the literature describes about 400 images of living creatures found in the Urals and the adjacent Trans-Urals and dated in the time range from the Paleolithic to the Bronze Age. Anthropomorphic images are represented by 60 artifacts, which is only 15 % of the total. Anthropomorphic stone images can be roughly divided into round, flat and flint sculptures. Pendants made in the form of a human head are very interesting. Clay figures are represented by images of women and separate heads. Anthropomorphic engraved images on stone and bone are rare finds. Images of anthropomorphic figures on ceramic vessels constitute a separate group. Most of the sculptural and graphic images dates back to the Neolithic and the Eneolithic.
