The figure shown here, carved in extremely low relief, may be identified as a worshipper by the right hand raised palm forward in a gesture of reverence. Votive images of worshipers similar to this one adorned the terraces of sanctuary complexes such as those at Bard-e Neshandeh and Masjid-i Sulaiman, both in the Iranian province of Khuzestan.
South-western Iran, 2nd century CE.
