This is the upper part of a sandstone statue which was found near Rowanduz village, modern Sulaimaniya Governorate, Iraq. The lack of inscriptions on this statue make it difficult to determine who this bearded man was. The statue is from the Musasir Kingdom. The precise location of the capital city of this kingdom is still unknown, but H. Lynch concluded that it was located near the village of Rowanduz, where this statue was found. (The Sulaimaniya Museum, Iraq).
