THE STORY BEHIND THE ANCIENT GREEK DOLL
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

THE STORY BEHIND THE DOLL
A religious idol, perhaps holding magical powers, reformed to the most popular toy for girls in ancient Greece.
This is the articulated doll (neurospasto) also known as Plagona. Made out of clay, usually with elaborate hairstyle, beautifully hand drawn, or dressed up with fabric clothing, served as a recreational and educational toy preparing young girls for their role as women later on.
They were made in the pottery by hand, the wheel and later on (mainly after 500 ac) using casting techniques.
These dolls, their favorite toys, were dedicated by the girls to goddess Artemis just before their marriage.
