Bronze fitting in the form of a seated figure

Elamite, about 1450-1200 BC. From south-west Iran. This bronze figure was originally fitted onto a larger object such as a piece of furniture, hence the two rivet holes for attachment through the tail-liker projection. It was obtained in south-west Iran, near the ancient town-site of Tang-e Sarvak. The form and appearance of the figure indicates that it should be dated to the fourteenth or thirteenth centuries BC. The hair style is very similar to that of terracotta figurines from Susa, of similar date.
