Ram's Head for Staff
from UET VII: "Head of a ram, carved in the round in dark steatite. The head and neck are made in separate pieces; the eyes were inlaid, but the inlay is missing. Very fine work and well preserved, only a few of the locks of hair and the ears being chipped. A hole runs up through the neck into the head and the object was probably mounted on a pole. Compare U.6832 (BM118565) and U.7598 (B17088)"
