Caption: Greek breasts votive offering. Votive offerings are representations of afflicted body parts presented to a god, either in the hope of a cure or as thanks for one. This sculpted terracotta object may present a malady of the breasts, perhaps breast cancer. Made from bronze or terracotta, as in this case, a large range of different votive body parts were made and offered up in their thousands.
