This statuette represents a very popular mythological hybrid figure that was largely widespread in Near Eastern iconography from the Sumerian period.
This vessel was carved from a thin and tall fragment of alabaster, finely furrowed with undulated, almost horizontal veins that randomly decorate the surface.
Although conveying a certain charm, typical of traditional folk art rather than formal representations, this statuette shows highly stylized and naive shapes which do not totally lighten the strength of the rectangular block of stone.
Like almost all Syrian terracotta statuettes dated to this period, this figurine was hand-modeled in a very stylized, almost instinctive manner; it is seated on a simplified stool.
This ushabti represents a male figure with a short false beard and a rounded wig, only painted on the front part of the statuette.
This idol is composed of three elements separated from each other: the bottle-shaped base, the cylindrical stem and the standard with the stylized animals.
The huge spiraled horns are this figurine’s main feature both visually and because they enable us to confidently identify the species represented.
This hemispherical vessel is provided, near the lip, with a horizontal, perfectly cylindrical spout. It is simply decorated.
Carved from a warm-colored, yellowish marble, this object has a well-proportioned and elegant shape that pleases the viewer with its geometric and simple outline.
This circular seal, slightly larger than the average size, shows a perfectly symmetrical internal decoration composed of circles arranged around a central cross.
This object, whose shape recalls a chalice, was carved from a monolith of calcite.
