Iconography Seated Figure

Ivory; seated figure showing feet and hem of garment.

Muscarella Publication: " Preserved is a figure seated on the edge of a chair, of the same type as those above, nos. 116, 117. Vertical incisions above the arm seem to indicate a beard. The man wears a garment with fringe at the hem and side indicated by incision, and at the lap by plastic zig-zags. His rather large left hand rests on his lap, while the right holds a vessel to his mouth. His sandaled feet rest on a lion's head, the body of which is apparently resting under a chair's legs. A small object, perhaps a tripod, is at the right. The reverse has neatly incised scoring."
