quote:

The museum collection of religious figures provides information about the beliefs and the cults of ancient people. Most of the statuettes are zoomorphic and anthropomorphic, depicting animals and humans. The museum also preserves the oldest marble statuette found on the territory of Bulgaria that dates back to the 6th millennium BC. It is a figure of a female with a massive lower body which is evidence of a cult to fertility and the Mother-Goddess. Some of the idols discovered are depicted with raised hands, which was a typical prayer position for the followers of the Sun cult.
