The Theory of Repetition
A website by Dr Laia Orphanidis, Researcher at the Academy of Athens Research Centre for Antiquity. The website focuses on Neolithic figurines and in particular on the Theory of Repetition which oncerns the interpretation of Neolithic figurines. This theory has been proposed and sustained for the first time in 1992 by Laia Orphanidis and it is based on the fact that all what is steadily repeated is a symbol.
Being responsible for the Neolithic Project of the Academy of Athens, Orphanidis has worked on Neolithic figurine material for a long time and made comparative studies in older finds as well as research in a rich material from private collections in Thessaly, Greece, which she has started recently to publish for the first time.
