Mystery One- what were these figurines used for? Are they representation or symbolic? For instance, there is no evidence of domesticated cats in the area, but some figurines show female figures holding catlike animals.
Mystery Two-did the people of Çatalhöyük believe in a mother goddess? Also, is the figurine at Çatalhöyük shown here the same as the Roman sculpture of Cybele that appears 6000 years later?
