Centaurs are human just with a horses bum attached (early version) Thought that this bronze gurine comes from lakonia (?) Eyes are missing - little holes left, likely inlaid with glass or something alike. Presence of bronze implies that greece is coming out of the dark ages - trade routes open up again - copper (for the bronze) More than just a simple wooden statue. Shields would be made to be as scary, yet divine as possible. Little baby gri n - mother gri n - the scariest. Gri ns have been depicted since the bronze age. Orientalizing - in uence of the near east. Gri ns in persia and mesopotamia (little nub at the top of it"s head tells us that) Apollo and hercules ghting over the tripod. Meant to be made of multiple materials. Inlaid with quartz or glass eyes and pubic hair. Shows that greece is coming out of the bronze age.
