A female Vinča figurine was found in fragments, during systematic research by the National Museum Kraljevo in a settlement from the younger Neolithic period Divlje Polje in Ratina near Kraljevo, in 1982. The body is composed of five parts, but the legs are missing. The face has a bird-like appearance with an accentuated nose, while the arms are bent at the elbows and placed on the abdomen. The chest is plastically shaped, and the area around the neck is richly decorated with parallel incisions, which may depict clothing or a tattoo. The glutes are accentuated and decorated with a spiral, while on the upper part of the back there is an incised broken meander. On the top, on each side, there are two holes, which probably allowed the figurine to be hung with a rope.
