Goddess from Afghanistan

By March 23, 2011

Follow me on:

From a tomb in Tillia Tepe, Afghanistan, came this piece of first century jewelry with a representation of a powerful goddess. This piece is from the national museum in Kabul, and the photograph was taken in 2006 when the piece was among those in the "Afghanistan, Rediscovered Treasures" exhibition at Musee Guimet in Paris, France.
