This a copper statuette of a warrior wearing a short kilt. He was probably holding weapons in his hands. Many similar statuettes were found and all of them were probably made in Lebanon. The characteristic features of this form of art are the drop-shaped face, rigid body posture, and the large eyes, which were previously inlaid. Circa 2000 BCE. From Upper Mesopotamia/modern-day Syria. (Pergamon Museum, Berlin,)
