Kneeling bull holding a spouted vessel

Kneeling bull holding a spouted vessel Proto-Elamite ca. 3100–2900 B.C. (Southwestern Iran) This small silver bull, clothed in a robe decorated with a stepped pattern and holding a spouted vessel, shows a curious blend of human and animal traits. The large neck meets distinctly human shoulders, which taper into arms that end in hooves. Representations of animals in human postures were common in Proto-Elamite art, possibly as symbols of natural forces but just as likely as protagonists in myths or fables. The function of this small masterpiece remains uncertain. Traces of cloth that were found affixed to the figure suggest that it was intentionally buried, perhaps as part of a ritual or ceremony. From the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York ********************************* Gaga Ağızlı ve Tutamakları Olan Bir Kabı Tutan Diz Çökmüş Boğa Figürü Proto-Elam Dönemi MÖ. 3100-2900 (Güneybatı İran) Bronz üzerine basamaklı bir desenle süslenmiş ve ağızlı bir kabı tutan bu küçük gümüş boğa, insan ve hayvan özelliklerinin ilginç bir karışımını gösterir. Büyük boyun, omuzlardan kollara uzanan ve toynaklarla biten hatlar insan omuzlarına ve anatomisine belirgin şekilde benzemektedir. İnsan duruşlu hayvan tasvirleri, Proto-Elam sanatında muhtemelen doğal güçlerin sembolleri olarak düşünülebilir fakat bunlar efsanelerdeki ya da masallardaki kahramanlar kadar yaygın bir durumdu. Bu küçük şaheserin işlevi hala belirsizliğini koruyor, bronz esere yapıştırılmış olarak bulunan kumaş izleri, belki de bir tören veya törenin parçası olarak kasıtlı olarak gömüldüğünü göstermektedir.

First view of the unusual, bronze oil lamp, recovered from a ditch at our South
First view of the unusual, bronze oil lamp, recovered from a ditch at our South Gloucestershire excavations. Originating in Egypt and dating to the 1st century AD, the form and subject currently appear to be unique.⠀ ⠀ It's quite well preserved, although it has suffered losses - the moulded base, as well as the hands and head of the subject, who wears a tunic and is shown sitting cross-legged. It's possible the figure featured an interchangeable head, hands and feet. Cast in one piece, its complex and hollow form makes it an extraordinary example of bronze-smithing.⠀ ⠀ #Roman#Archaeology#Gloucestershire#Iconography#Bronze#CASiteTeam#CommercialArchaeology#UKArchaeology#BritishArchaeology#Archaeologists#Fieldwork#ArchaeologicalSite#ArchaeologicalExcavation#ArchaeologicalDig#DigArchaeology#ArchaeologyFieldwork#FieldArchaeology#FieldArchaeologists#ArchaeologistAtWork#WorkOutdoors#LoveWhatYouDo#ArchaeologyGeeks#ArchaeologyLovers#ArchaeologistsOfInstagram#InstaArchaeology#Heritage#History Thanks to Cotswold Archaeology => @cotswoldarch

This is not your ordinary crazy quilt! By the mid-1880s, "crazy quilts" were so popular that enterprising manufacturers offered them in ready-to-sew kits, explaining their strangely uniform quality. However, this quilt top is designed with unusual patterns, and the blocks seem to be composed of real scraps. There are some commercially produced elements, such as the cats and some of the embroidered motifs, but the original aspects of this piece make it stand apart from the run-of-the-mill crazy quilts that exist in great numbers today. #NationalQuiltingDay#crazyquilt#quilt#TheMet@metamericanwing⁣ ____⁣ Pictured: Quilt Top, Crazy pattern, ca. 1885.

Artist Leonora Carrington spent her childhood on a country estate surrounded by animals and reading fairy tales and legends. She revisited these memories in her adulthood, creating paintings populated with real and imagined creatures. This self-portrait shows Carrington perched on the edge of a chair in a curious, dreamlike scene, with her hand outstretched toward the prancing hyena and her back to the tailless rocking horse flying behind her. #WomensHistoryMonth#LeonoraCarrington#TheMet ⁣ ____⁣ Artwork: Leonora Carrington (Mexican (born England), 1917–2011). Self-Portrait, ca. 1937–38. Oil on canvas. Thanks to The Met => @metmuseum
