Following the study of some of the vessels uncovered during the archaeological excavations at Baia-În Muchie (Suceava County, Romania), vessels which, in fact, are similar to others that have been recovered from Precucuteni-Tripolye A area, and which are also decorated with stylised anthropomorphic representations, it can be argued that the spiritual life of those communities was full of significant rituals, which can even be regarded as “myths”. The use of these pots as cult objects is suggested by the way in which their decorum and symbolic elements were organized, but also by their liquid volumes, which are always multiple of 0,5. The approach of symbols in relation to the history of religion, suggests that those communities lived in a world believing in lunar cults, which, in fact, is a common belief in the 4th millennium BC.


Keywords: Precucuteni-Tripolye A, Baia-În Muchie, anthropomorphic representations, symbolism
