On offer here is a detailed replica impression of a cylinder seal from the ancient Akkadian period.
Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone it has an aged ochre patina which has been given a light polish.
The bull man on the left is a character often noted to be Enkidu, the companion of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh the Sumerian warrior-king can be seen on the right.
Enkidu was a man who was raised by animals, and not usually shown as a bull/man but it is likely that Sumerian artistic convention could to sometimes show a level of flexibility to portray him as such.
Grabbed by the tail and manes the two rampant bulls have raised their forelegs to rest on the stylized mountain of the sacred tree.
