According to lead archaeologist Marta Korczyńska, the ornament was likely part of a bigger vessel, like a bowl.

Dr Moskal-del Hoyo added: “Today, we are unable to conclusively interpret this portrayal.

“However, it seems likely such an unusual artefact could, to some extent, be tied to the sphere of the sacred.”

The archaeologists are, however, certain the discovery shows a link between the neolithic people of Poland and Hungary and Slovakia.
