Chalcolithic PERIOD

Chapter male anthropomorphic figure, late Chalcolithic culture Kodzhadermen-Gumelnitsa-Karanovo VI, tel Vetren

 

The Copper-Stone Age (chalcolithic/eneolithic) dates back to 4900 – 3800 BC. The findings in the museum’s exposition, that represent the end of the Chalcolithic Age, were discovered in the Gabarevo village mound.

The material culture of the village mound belongs to the last III phase of the late-Chalcolithic culture Kodjadermen-Gumelnitsa-Karanovo VI.

The copper work instruments and objects (sickles, axes and needles), which were found there, are proofs of the local population’s achievements in metallurgy and the processing of the first ever metal discovered by mankind – copper.

The mound also gave birth to the female anthropomorphic and zoomorphic plastic arts made from clay and bones. The figure of a ceramic turtle, which was decorated from the outside with graphitic paint, is quite interesting. The ceramic utensils have biconical and seldom rounded forms. Their surfaces are mostly dark, shiny, with grey-and-black colors. The decoration of the outside surface was made in silver graphitic color.
