The lecture focuses on the visual categories employed by the Neolithic people in the process of understanding their bodies as well as the ways they used their bodies in different contexts to imply certain ideas. A number of figurines, anthropomorphic vessels, house models and furnaces from the Balkans will be presented, thus implying a wide range of mediums that used the human body and affirmed it as an adequate means for expressing crucial symbolic concepts of Neolithic populations.
