Description
The Old Testament is full of stories of the false gods of Canaan, of which this is surely one, most likely Ba'al. The deity is presented simply, yet majestically, wearing a tall, conical hat to designate his power. In spite of its small size, the statue projects an aura of strength which makes it easy to comprehend why he caused the ancient Hebrews so much worry. - (FZ.095)
