So called Air godess

I want to present this piece before moving on, as it has been identified as an air goddess. I do not know what this identification comes from and I want to highlight how difficult it can be to say exactly what the motif of a statue is. Some Gods have very easily recogniziable attributed, some less easily noticeable traits but after that, we move into a very dark realm of educated guesses and interpretations. Even so, there are typologies and series that makes identifications that seems like miracles possible.
