Object Description

A fine black stone stamp seal from the Near East. The seal bears the engraving of a winged man with his arms raised, possibly a depiction of the god Ninurtu. Great detailing has been given to the plumage of the wings and to the man’s robes, head and facial features. The man stands on a reptilian-like figure, possibly representing the god Anzu. The seal is pierced for suspension, suggesting the owner could have also worn it as an ornament.

Date: Circa 9th-8th century BC.
