The body of the figure is essentially a rectangular block with broad,curved indentations to delineate legs and a 'saddle-like' effect on the back. From a high “collar,” the head extends in a solid form ending in a flattened snout,where a single incised line is drawn across the center to indicate a mouth. Bulging eyes are set within diamond shaped, nestled between a simple sloping ridge of the nose. The entire animal is decorated in punched holes or circles covering the entire body, with the exception of the back area. A stubby tail completes the zoomorphic appearance, which is like many animals in one, but unlike any that are known-- except in the imagination. - (PF.3611)Iron Age Terracotta Zoomorphic Sculpture - PF.3611Origin: Central Asia Circa: 1200 BC to 800 BCDimensions: 10" (25.4cm) high x 4.25" (10.8cm) wide Catalogue: V20Collection: Near Eastern Style: Iron Age Medium: Terracotta
