Item:323885826936BEAUTIFUL AND HIGHLY DECORATED ANCIENT LURISTAN BRONZE MASTER OF ANIMALS PLAQUE C.1200-1000BCEThe Master of Animals or Lord of Animals is a motif in ancient art. It is very widespread in the art of the Ancient Near East. The figure is normally male, but not always, the animals may be realistic or fantastical, and the figure may have animal elements such as horns, or an animal upper body. Unless he is shown with specific divine attributes, he is typically described as a hero, although what the motif represented to the cultures which created the works probably varies greatly. The motif is so widespread and visually effective that many depictions were probably conceived as decoration with only a vague meaning attached to them. The Master of Animals is the "favorite motif of Achaemenian official seals", but the figures in these cases should be understood as the king.
