Tell-settlement of Vidra is located on the left bank of the Sabar stream and it was discovered by D.V. Rosetti in 1929 with the occasion of a preventive investigation. It was intermittently excavated between 1931-1958. The settlement has several levels of habitation belonging to the Boian and Gumelnita cultures. In this paper are presented the figurines and personal adornments discovered in the site and which are preserved in collections of the Bucharest Municipality Museum. According to the information provided by D.V. Rosetti, these pieces come exclusively from Gumelniţa levels. 85 pieces were analyzed of which 24 made of bone, 2 made of teeth and 59 made of bivalve shell. These are finished pieces, exceptionally preserved and which gives us information about the spiritual and aesthetic life of the Vidra community.
