Mesopotamia Early Dynastic I-II  Date: circa  2900 to 2600 BC

A rare fragmentary standing male figure, probably from a temple shrine, wearing a pleated woolen garment with a sash across shoulder, probably a notation of status.
Size 7 in H. + custom base

Condition: Head, foot and hand gone, hole in torso.  Surface encrusted as to obscure the details of the pleats in the garment.

Ancient Sumerians dedicated statues of themselves to their gods, placing them before the divine image in the temple. The posture of the votive statues, with hands clasped against the chest, ensured that they remained in constant prayer.
