    The Statue of a Man was constructed during the Early Dynastic Period in Ur, Iraq.

    With no name and created by an unknown artist, this stone statue was created in the 7th-8th century (during the Chinese Tang dynasty). As the intent behind this creation is unknown, other than it being a tomb guardian, the reasoning behind it caused a lot of intrigue. The most notable trait this sculpture possesses is the amount of different animals that it comprises of. The shape and the platform that the statue rests upon, as well as its mythological form give it a divine sense of self. Like…
