The world of eneolthic figurines from Republic of Macedonia

My area of specialization is the chipped stone industry, but I love the prehistoric art left by our ancestors. The prehistoric figurines from Macedonia reached the international public at the 'Unearthed' exhibition, at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, and undoubtedly attracted attention concerning the question about the spatial and temporal boundaries of the Neolithic societies of the world. Recently, an eneolithic site in the village of Spancevo in eastern Macedonia was excavated and gave us more wonderful peaces of prehistoric art in the shape od small female figurines decorated with various patterns. I hope the exhibition, currently on display in the city museum of Kocani, will travel around the world and once again show the fabulous dimension of our ancestors.
