This idol dates from the beginning of the 4th millennium B.C. and was found in the ancient settlement situated by the village of Gradeshnitsa, Vratsa region.

It is similar to the idols found in Lake Town, yet, it is somewhat different.

The ornamental incisions or writing symbols seen on it are much more numerous.

The arms are only slightly marked.

The upper of the waist is tight, while the lower part grows into something like a capital.

The legs are intertwined.

The figure is more stylized.
