The Halaf culture is a prehistoric period which lasted between (about) 6100 BC to 5100 BC during the development of the earlier Neolithic pottery and located in southeast Turkey, Syria and northern Iraq. Halaf-influenced type art is also found throughout Mesopotamia.

These are possible goddesses from 6000-5100 BC.
