> No problem. Any thoughts?



Note to self: do not attempt to decipher drawings on cuneiform tablets before finishing at least one cup of coffee. Its funny because I could not see it for the life of me yet when I look at it now I can see nothing else. Drrt.

Anyhoo, a curious image. My first thought would be we need to find out what this tablet says as it stands to reason it would give clues if not state who/what/where the head is meant to represent. I did a cursory search but could not find anything.

The skull does have an elongated shape which is seen in the the white crown as well as statuary, reliefs, and physical examples of skulls throughout AE history. Elongated skulls of various types are common in Mesopotamia before during and after this period so this in and of itself is not exclusive to the AE. Though the shape of the beard is not an exact match for the AE style of this period, it is superficially similar and regardless a-typical of depictions of Mesopotamian style beards. The long neck and sloping forehead are also incongruous with Mesopotamian depictions of themselves which does remind one of some much later AE art of Egyptians, but this is so far removed in time stylistically it would be hard to make a connection there at least artistically.

No one would be happier than me for this to be a representation of an Egyptian, but without knowing what the tablet says I would not hazard a guess beyond at the very least it may well in fact be a representation of a foreigner. Gotta find out what that tablet says. I'm very curious to know what the ziggurat/pyramid with stairway looking symbol is to the right of the head.
