Roman votive offering, ca. 200 - 100 BCE. These votives were offered to the gods in the hope of a cure or in thanks for the healing of an illness. The votive was in the shape of the afflicted portion of the body, meaning that there are also ear votives, penis votives, and so on. Source: Brought to Life, because no really I’m obsessed.
