Description
It is a little difficult to discern the exact identity of this quadruped: it is most likely a sheep or a horse. It hardly seems to matter, for its naive energy and lack of specific details add to its appeal. Such animals were probably turned out in great numbers near temple sites to be offered as gifts to the local deities. Holding its simple form today, we wonder who it was first set it upon the altar and what they dared ask for in return. - (Z.0077)
