Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This model represents a chariot protected by a front shield. The interior of the shield has been stamped with the image of a worshiper standing before a god wearing a tall, horned headdress. He holds a rod and ring in one hand, measuring instruments associated with divine justice. The elongated figures resemble depictions of deities on cylinder seals from the period.
