In the collection of the Archeological Museum in Kraków there is a stone statue (inv. no: MAK/7911), belonging to examples of monumental statue sculptures. It was created by the Turkic - Mongol nomads who arrived in the Black Sea region in the mid-11th century, and were known in Europe as the Cumans, Kipchaks or Polovtsy. Details presented on the stone figure from the Krakow collection find their analogies in the material obtained from Polovtsian grave inventories. Dating of all the above described elements indicates the period from the mid-11th c. to the turn of the 13th and 14th century. Erecting figures representing images of women and men on older burial mounds served various functions in the Polovtsian culture.
