Product Description


"Well written, with copious footnotes and bibliography, this is an interesting art, historical, and anthropological approach to Sumerian sculpture."
E. H. Cline, Choice

"Evans' study of Sumerian statues in the Early Dynastic Period gives new arguments and ideas on a long interpretation of material, with a very interesting new perspective that is based on the importance of the archaeological contexts where statues have been recovered and, possibly, lived."
Davide Nadali, Bibliotheca Orientalis

Book Description

This book examines both the early modern reception and the ancient context of the temple sculptures created during the Early Dynastic period (2900-2350 BC) of Sumer. Chronicling the intellectual history of ancient Near Eastern art history and archaeology at the intersection of sculpture and aesthetics, this book also engages with the archaeology of the Early Dynastic temple to consider the meaning and function of these sculptures.

For archaeologists of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures Feb. 26 2013
By Helga - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a scientific publication. For a general audience, it is too restrictive. The author presents very interesting new research results concerning a particular genre of the art of the ancient Near East. For all those who are concerned with discussing "Beterfiguren," the book is required reading.
