• Subiect: „The main objective of the paper is the presentation of a special type of ornamentation of the anthropomorphic plastic art belonging to the cultural complex Cucuteni-Tripolye, the metal inserts. The item which allowed this remark belongs to the habitation assigned to phase A of the pluristratified site on Cetăţuie Hill of Cucuteni. It was published in the monograph of the settlement without pointing out this unusual method of ornamentation. Macroscopic observations were confirmed by chemical analyses achieved through XRF (X ray fluorescence) analyses. The analyses of the elements (composition) allowed pointing out an insert with a high amount of cooper. The purpose of this method of ornamentation was first of all an aesthetic one, the metal insert representing the central part (the pendentive) of a particular type of neck ornamenting item, belonging to the category of those previously defined by us as implicit representations. The association with an incised spiral ornamentation and the role of metal in the cultural and social processes during of the epoch the elaboration of this item allow us to consider that the symbolic valences attached to the respective ornamenting item and, consequently to the anthropomorphic statuette which was decorated in this way were absolutely special. Pointing out certain directions of interpretation of the unique artifact as well as the identification of analogies or symbolic similarities form the other objectives of our presentation.”
