  Bull statuette from the Bronze Age
by MalenaN
 
 

There are several bull statuettes made in bronze, with silver. This bull is 52 cm high and is from the 3rd millennium BC. It was found in Alacahöyük.
These kinds of statuettes have probably been used as standards in religious processions. Also sun discs are common from the same period, the late Bronze Age.
