Finial with Two Felines


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Finials for ceremonial standards and bridle bits with animal forms are characteristic of the metalwork produced by the hunter societies of Luristan about 1050-600 BC. The life of the hunter is built around animals, as food, transportation, and the embodiment of the unfathomable forces of nature.
