Malta settlement, Siberia
This miniature figurine represents a woman in fur overalls. The decoration of the figure shows a
fur garment typical of Malta statuettes. The whole of the figure, with the exception of the face, is
covered with parallel horizontal incised lines. The face is flat and wide, and the eyes and nose are
clearly indicated. The legs taper towards the feet. A hole in the place of feet shows that this
figurine was probably used as an amulet.
