Seller: abca-c-sllc5hjngh (490) 100%, Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 263837391522 ANTHROPOMORPHIC FIGURINE - ISRAEL. Paleo Hebrew script helps date this piece to the Iron II period (1000 - 586 B.C.E.). King or deity depicted with relief carved almond-shaped eyes under arching eyebrows. Carved into limestone, with head broken off.The break appears to be recent and I purchased the body portion separately on e-bay when noticing the paleo Hebrew script. The head portion came up for sale months later from the same seller and I noticed the match right away. The paleo Hebrew letters may be mem, bet (or resh), resh (or dalet), and he (or het). I know of no other example of a figurine like this that includes writing from this early period. Figurine measures 5 1/4" high (with head attached) x 3 1/4" wide x 2" thick. Material: Limestone
