Seller: arahan_2007 (752) 100%, Location: Rego Park, New York, Ships to: US, Item: 123924327714 Ancient Syro-Hittite Copper Idol ca. 2800-1500 BC Ex Jeff Hunter Collection. The Idol measures (without base) 2 1/2 x 7/8 inches.Head broken off and re glued else with expected age wear as seen in the images. This rare idol of highly abstract form examples such as this one, that reduce the human figure to a simple collection of shapes and lines, are considered some of our oldest abstract art. They fascinate us today in part because they hint at a belief system and cosmology that we can no longer access or understand. Instead, we guess at the meaning - Are they fertility charms? Representations of old gods?. A very rare type with impeccable credentials since Jeff Hunter was a prolific and savvy collector with exquisite taste. Condition: Head broken off and re glued else with expected age wear as seen in the images, Material: Copper, Provenance: Ownership History Available
