Iron Age II Clay Figurines and Zoomorphic Vessels

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


We discuss 49 Iron Age II clay figurines and zoomorphic vessels, one mold and a unique stone figurine found at Tel Rehov in the Galilee, Israel. The figurines include a new type (freestanding plaque figurines); drummer female figurines; a drummer modified into a female and child figurine; zoomorphic vessels, and more. The conclusions relate to the interpretations and religious aspects of the figurines, and the difference between figurines in northern Israel and Southern Israel (Judah)..
