This amulet, molded in a uniform, slightly friable pale blue frit, is carved on both sides and represents a left eye and a right eye in low relief. The hole for suspension was pierced horizontally, at the eye level.
This solid bronze ring is composed of an almost circular loop and an elliptical cabochon. It is decorated with an incised figure that can be easily identified by his attributes as the god Hermes, associated with Mercury (Mercurius) by the Romans.
Carved from a small limestone monolith, this statuette is certainly one of the first three-dimensional images of elephant in Near Eastern art; moreover, these large mammals were rarely represented in the rich animal iconography of this prominent culture.
