Author(s): Parrot, Andre

Keywords: Mesopotamia : Eridu-'Ubaid period, Early Sumerian period, Fara-Ur I period, Imperial Akkadian period;sculpture;stone;book scan
Description: The headdress of this statuette, recalling a polos, is so far known only from the region of Mari and seems to have been native there. The same holds for the long loose outer garment, which covers also the head. The right side is badly damaged, inlays have disappeared.
