An excellent very large brown-gream stone seal in the form of a reclining cow, dating to the Late Uruk-Jemdet Nasr period of Mesopotamia, 3300-2900 BC

The seal is engraved in drill-technique on the base. The cow is very sensitively modelled, looking back towards his tail. Pierced.

Size: 41 mm. long and massive! Weight c. 36-37 grams.

Ex. European Private Collection, Hirsch sale 2013.
