Has aroused great curiosity in us a small figures of slate, known in southwest Spain as “Idolos Placa”. These small figures, has been found mainly near to dolmens and tholoi, created between the fourth and third millennia BC.
Apparently these figurines were carried by the neolithic people and the first Copper Age of the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula, and are associated with the protection of the wearer or a seal of family lineages. They are also related to the earth mother (Venus).
We believe that the most interesting is the schematic representation of the human face, especially the big eyes. Our curiosity led us to ask us who viewed these old eyes and if we could see through them. So that we begin to create some figures, as those old artists did. And who knows? maybe, we are protected by ancestral gods and we would be a artists come from between the deads.
