Summary/Abstract: In this article, the authors present five clay lids with human traits discovered at Şoimuş-La Avicola (Ferma 2), Hunedoara County. The contexts of their discovery belong to Turdaş tradition being revealed on the occasion of some rescue excavations made on the A1 Motorway, Deva-Orăştie sector. Beside these clay lids other artifacts with human traits were also discovered in this settlement, such as anthropomorphic representations on pottery, clay “altars”, anthropomorphic vessels and clay figurines. Interesting fact is that human representations depicted on those kind of artifacts mentioned before are very similar one to another.
