The article describes a special category of anthropomorphous figurines of Tripolye-Cucuteni culture (cca 5400—2650 cal BC) — figurines with realistic features. In this case “realistic” means detailed image of the head. The main aim of this work is to collect all data about realistic sculpture of Tripolye-Cucuteni formation. Today we have information about 100 realistic figurines, described in the catalogue. A lot of figurines are casual finds, but if they were found during archaeological excavations, circumstances of their finding are described. Analysis of realistic sculpture is carried out in accordance with contemporary local and chronological division of Tripolye-Cucuteni. Detailed description of concrete sculptures allowed to propose classification of realistic figurines and to pick out iconographic types and related sacral images of realistic sculpture.

Keywords: Tripolye-Cucuteni Culture, anthropomorphous figurines, realistic figurines
