Recent archaeological discoveries combined with new technologies applied to the objects give us a better understanding of the history, function and spread of Tanagra statuettes from Antiquity, as the mythology created in the 19th century about these terracotta figurines and the systematic looting of the tombs in which they were kept had prevented us from getting objective data until now.
