The figurine may be depiciting a bronze age goddess, similar to the one I found here in this article - of course, with the artist's personal slant on it.

These golden figurines are probably artistic representations of the gods (aliens) who descended from the sky and appeared among the ancient people who made them...

But who and what these alien gods actually are and from where they came from are mysterious questions with even more mysterious answers...

Representations of the demons they conjured during ritualistic human sacrifice?

Here's another similar female gold statutette in the museum. Can anyone read Danish?

Yes, I can.

It says something like:

Two gold men and a shameless gold woman found in Smørenge
Recently two small gold men were found with the help of metal detectors in Smørenge, bringing the total number to four. The figures, which were found within a few meters, are most likely buried together about 1500 years ago. Both weigh about 1.3 grams. They are probably male figures, as there is nothing feminine about them. That can't be said about the gold woman - a female not hiding anything. This unusual gold woman was presumably buried in a fertility ritual. The figure weighs just 0.11 grams. The new findings will be exhibited along with the slightly larger gold man who was found in March.

Shameless? blink.gif

Women's naked bodies bearing babies? Naked fertility godesses?

I see the f**d up mentality of viewing women's bodies as sexual (shameless) is most prevalent within this area, was that sentiment by the archaeologist or museum curator who did the writeup (hmmmmm?).
