A finely modelled Old Babylonian creamy earthenware plaque, depicting an elaborately jewelled goddess. The figure is portrayed with hoop earrings and wearing a long vest, covering the total length of her body. The architecture in which the goddess appears standing, has been rendered through a series of incised lines, echoing real-life wooden architecture. The reverse appears flat and unworked, suggesting that the piece might have been attached to the flat surface of a temple or shrine.
Date: Circa 1894-1650
