Object Description

A finely rendered Luristan cast bronze finial, featuring a pair of bearded ibexes shown in profile, facing inwards with prominent arching horns. The piece is beautifully balanced and symmetrical, with the ibexes’ slender two front legs meet, perched on the central stand, and are further supported by their slender hind legs and stylised, twisted tails. A hollow socket is fixed in between the two animals, suggesting the piece may have been part of a more elaborate Master of the Animals type finial. The finial features some earthly encrustations and natural blue-green patination.
Date: Circa 1200-800 BC

Object Condition

Very fine, a beautiful deep green patination visible on the surface. Some earthly encrustations.
