A set of archaic stone carvings were rarely in pairs by a ram and a ewe.
Obviously excavated from the noble’s tomb which traditionally using the fairy animal as protection guardians or mattress’ weights, the pairs was carved in simple form but in vivid look in depiction of their features and the strenuous bodies.
In relax and natural crouching postures, the animal was applied with white slip all over the surface as the basic layer, when colorful paint were supposedly been used to lining their features.
