I am on my feet, I'll be dancing slow

"This unique creation represents a singular achievement in Maltese prehistoric art. This beautifully rendered figure of the reclining lady was discovered in pit in one of the painted galleries of the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. Often hailed as a ‘sleeping mother goddess’, the figure may well be an eloquent representation of Death or the eternal sleep." - The Malta National Museum of Archaeology
