Amazing Sculpture Ornamenting A Ceramic Jug Discovered In Yehud

This highly stylised figurine is a variant of a class of idol found predominantly in the Cyclades, but also elsewhere in the Ancient Near East. This variant has been called the 'Kusura type' by Colin Renfrew (1969: 27ff.) after the site where a number of examples were discovered. The distribution of this particular type indicates a Western Anatolian origin, for similar idols have been found at Burdur, Samos, Lebedos, Troy, near Manisa and at Karatas-Semayuk .
