I will readily admit, I have a huge weakness for chubby, little goddesses. This figurine is not based on anything in particular, just the standard concept of the prehistoric zaftig, fecund Mother Goddess. From behind, the patterning of the firing makes it look like she is wearing a Japanese wrestler's mawashi (belt) so I think of her as my her my little sumo goddess.

She is approximately 3.6 inches high and about 1.8 inches at her widest point. Because each figurine is individually hand made, imperfections are to be expected and no two sculptures are alike and can never be reproduced to the exact same effect. They are one of a kind and unique.

This firing was graciously done for me by my friend Rebecca in Utah. You can see her exquisite pottery at her etsy site:
