Description These gods were made separately and soldered together. The squat bodies, large heads and ears, and heavy features are stylistically Hittite, although the headdress and posture have been taken from Syrian examples influenced by Egyptian styles.
Examined as part of case re-installation.
Repaired to reattach figures to base.
