Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the research questions of this project through a specific material group, the Cypriot portrait like sculpture. The author approaches the problem of Cypriot 'portraiture' and raw materials as well as of Cypriot 'portraiture' and religious importance, bringing together the theory and methods proposed by Connelly and Smith with recent theoretical developments on social power and the archaeology of religion. These comments lead more clearly to the alternative approach regarding the Cypriot 'portraits', which this study proposes. Enough reference has been made in this chapter to the active role of objects. The study of the sacred landscapes in relation to the portraitlike sculptures offers complementary results. The foundations of this chapter are therefore already laid. Nonetheless, the author focuses here on a review of the existing literature through the particular methodological lens of this project.

Keywords:Connelly; Cypriot portrait; methodological lens; portraitlike sculptures; sacred landscapes; smith
