Head of a Ram


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Representations of rams are rare in ancient South Arabian art, but they are common in works from Egypt and Nubia (present-day southern Egypt and northern Sudan). This small ram's head may attest to cultural exchanges between South Arabia and northeastern Africa.
