The Lady of Elche
The Lady of Elche is the biggest work of art from the Iberian sculpture, dated around the centuries IV and I b.C. Nowadays she is on show in the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid.

She is a feminine bust made of calcareous stone, discovered in 1897 en La Alcudia (Elche). Richly decorated, she has a tiara tight fitting with a hair band, two big wheels over the ears to gather the hair and necklaces over the bust. Some specialists consider that the hole in her back is used by a funerary urn. The bust is a funerary image probable over a wax mask. Some rests of color remains over the sculpture and she should be done by a greek native. She was bought by the Louvre Museum (Paris), where she stayed till 1971 when she went to the Museo del Prado (Madrid) due to and exchange made between both entities.

The Lady of Elche, together with the ladies of Cerro de los Santos and Baza (all of them in the National Archaeological Museum of Madrid) are three exceptional examples of the Iberian culture.
