Monstrous male figure Bronze Age, ca. late 3rd–early 2nd millennium B.C. Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex. Chlorite, calcite, gold, iron.
During the Early Bronze Age in Central Anatolia (Turkey) 3000–2000 BCE, a number of nonliterate, discrete cultures with little contact with urban Mesopotamia produced spectacular metal vessels, jewelry, weapons, and musical instruments buried with their rulers. This pair of long-horned bulls were cast separately of arsenical copper, held together by extensions of their front and back legs, bent around the plinth.
