Object Description

A spectacular double-ended Luristan animal pendant of a good size. Made of moulded bronze, this pendant features two horse-like creatures, conjoined from the body. The horses have exaggerated features, with large eyes and prominent snouts, leading into a fine body and slender legs. Linear patterns on the characteristically elongated neck are suggestive of bridles, and the chest area features incised decoration. The pendant features a thick loop for suspension, and blue-green patination from long-term burial in the earth.

Object Condition

Very fine. Some green patination and earthly encrustations.
