Archaeologists ponder the meaning of such a statue which was unearthed in a shaft grave: Was the figure merely bedded down and sleeping or does it reflect physical restraints due to physical or mental illness or drug use? Was it placed in the tomb to accompany the deceased in the afterlife? The mystery remains. Comes with custom mount. Excellent provenance: formerly of the Weisman Collection. Acquired in the 1950s-60s.
