An Old Babylonian cream pottery moulded pottery figurine of a horse; roughly modelled, with only slight definition to the ears and mane and round indentations to face and neck.

Fine condition; complete and intact.

Ancient Near East
Circa 19th-17th century BC. 

Models of various animals reflect a popular theme: they were probably used as ex-votos or, in the family sphere, as a toy for children. Popular in Near Eastern, Egyptian and Mediterranean ancient art, such animals were not related to any particular deity and their meaning is not entirely clear.
