A superb cylinder seal carved in Lapis Lazuli, Mesopotamian, Early Dynastic period, 2600-2500 BC.

The seal is of very high quality, featuring a very good contest scene in which a Hero is figthing two horned animals while another hero is figthing one horned animal. Very detailed. Interestingly, there's a cobber wire stock inside the seal since antiquity and it has developed much corrosion and patina.

Provenance: Egeskov Collection; Ex. Victoria Lindstrom Antiques in Stockholm; Ex. Swedish Private Collection ca. 1950.
