Adam of Macedonia

Adam of Macedonia is a small ceramic figurine of a male torso in seating position, discovered in 2000 at the archaeological site Govrlevo (near Skopje). The figurine is dated between the 4th and the 3rd millennium B.C. and represents one of the ten unique archaeological findings in the world. After it was discovered it was called Discovery of the Millennium. Adam has a peculiar artistic form. It is an imperfectly preserved attempt for a representation of a man, captured at a moment of physical and spiritual activity. This male body in a seated position has accentuated anatomy, deeply withdrawn stomach, accentuated navel, well defined muscles, visible spine, and even a broken phallus.
