"Cycladic idols are generally depicted with their arms folded just above their stomachs. Sometimes their bellies are swollen, suggesting pregnancy. A flat, oval face with a protruding triangular nose is a mark of the style. The emphasis on the linear forms of the body is another traditional characteristic of these Cycladic artworks. Examples of such fertility goddesses, have their feet stretched downwards and some scholars have surmised that these idols were not meant to be standing up, but reclining. Similar idols have been found in a single tomb, which indicates that they also played an important a role in the afterlife of the Ancient Cycladic people. While many ancient cultures have disappeared from the pages of history, the idol findings in the Aegean islands helped the rediscovery of the Cycladic culture."
