In the article the authors characterizes two anthropomorphic wares discovered at the settlement of the Precucuteni culture in Izvoare (Neamţ county) in 1988. The first of them represents the lower part of a large hollow figurine with open conical base, which is decorated in traditional style of the Precucuteni III culture (figs. 1 and 2). The second find is the representation of a human face pressed out in the wall of a clay vessel (figs. 3 and 4). In the context of new finds the author discusses the problem of anthropomorphic vessels and human representations in general in the Precucuteni and Cucuteni A cultures. The analysis of existing evidence allows tracing significant impact of the Precucuteni culture in the formation of the stylistic traditions of the Cucuteni culture. At the same time the author emphasizes the role of Balkan cultures (respectively Karanovo VI and Gumelniţa) in the spread of these and other traits in northern direction.
