Seller: ancient_art4wuz (10,023) 100%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 332031481663 Roman Clay Lamp with JonahA slightly over-fired Roman clay lamp depicting Jonah reclining under the gourd-vine and a sea monster. The lamp reflects the early version of the famous Biblical story about Jonah who was offered as a sacrifice to God by desperate sailors and thrown out of the ship in the storm. He was saved when he was swallowed by a whale - surviving in his stomach for three days and praying. God commanded the whale spew him out on the coast where he reclined under the gourd-vine. After that, God commanded him to visit Niniveh and preach to the inhabitants. However, in this depiction, the animal is not a whale, but rather a Roman mythical sea monster - the scaly cetus, as known in the early versions of this story and early depictions. Jonah is a significant prophet in Christianity, Judaism and Islam.Period: 5th cent. A.D.Length: 13.8 cmWidth: 8.1 cmHeight: 3.5 cm Condition: Good
