This paper deals with anthropomorphic figurines of Early Bronze Age Anatolia: their typology, meaning and function. Having rejected hitherto existing interpretations as unfounded, the present author analyses the figurines' formal features and their find contexts in order to reconstruct the way they were used and the symbolic meaning they supposedly conveyed. The analysis of the development of Anatolian figurines enables us to trace the genesis of the so-called 'idols', that is schematic stylized figurines characteristic for the eastern Mediterranean in later prehistory.
