This is a spectacular ancient Persian Luristan bronze finial of the Egyptian God "Bes" (c. 6th century BC) in excellent condition for its age. The bronze has formed a beautiful blue-green patina over time, adding to the beauty and intrigue of the mysterious piece. The finial may have originally perched atop any number of objects, but the size and weight of this particular finial suggests something rather large. Mounted, it would make a distinctive impression upon any art collection.

As with other cultures throughout history, the Near Eastern peoples of antiquity would create art representing images and motifs from other cultures, and it appears that this piece comes from that realm.

This artifact has been attested as authentic ancient Near Eastern in origins by Mr. Matthew Wicks of Ancient Hands, LTD, and attributes it to the 6th century B.C. The Near Eastern region describes the land areas of Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. A PDF copy of the statue's "Provenance & Ownership" documentation is attached.
