Terracottas, votive offerings and other ritual objects

Vitrina 91
This showcase exposes, on the one hand, terracotta and perfume burners found in Puntal dels Llops or Castellet de Bernabé related to ancestors cults and fertility rituals performed in domestic spaces. On the other hand, a collection of bronze votive-offerings representing male and female characters, related to healing practices and rituals, a common finding in caves.
Finally, an extensive collection of vessels found in the cave of Puntal del Horno Ciego (Villargordo del Cabriel, Valencia) suggests either ritual activities, carried out in caves or cave shrines.
