Abstract
The Eneolite and the Bronze Age settlements of Azerbaijan were rich in cultural heritage. The material and cultural examples they inherited were shaped by the influence of cultural, religious-ideological, economic, political relations with the local tribes and the neighboring tribes. From this point of view, women's imaginative material-cultural samples, which are the product of the religious-ideological outlines of the tribes of the times, are of great importance and are considered to be topical issues of the time since they have not been studied by archaeologists. The period during which the first farmers and males lived in the area are considered to be the period of various economic sectors, including art and art. In recent years, archeologists have collected many collections of arts and crafts from tribes living in Azerbaijan. Among these collections, women's figurines from the influence of religious-ideological thoughts of the tribes of the time can be considered as rare art pearls.
