Mesopotamia / Babylonian statue replica of a man and his dog. Neo Babylonian era


Neo - Babylonian statue

Dimensions - Height - 9.5 cm / 3 - 3/4 inches

Square base - 4.5 x 4.5 cm / 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 inches

Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone it has an aged slate black patina and it is mounted on a felt based stand.

This is a very special small scale sculpture replica of a Babylonian man and his dog which has to be one of the most charming images to have survived the ancient Neo-Babylonian period. 626 - 539 B.C.E

This was a time when there was a major revival of the already ancient styles associated with Sumerian art. Prompted by the discovery of long buried temples and sculptures this cultural treasure inspired the artists of the day to revive the styles and sometimes subject matter of the early kings and his people.

This statue has some fine details in the depiction of the beard and the overall form is balanced and attractive from all angles.

This statue is a snapshot of an ancient life showing the origins of the phrase ' a mans best friend' in sculptural form.
