Description
Perhaps originally worn as a protective amulet, this beautiful seal depicts a benevolent nature deity surrounded by birds and animals. Created in Ancient Palestine, it evokes the pastoral imagery of the psalms, a world of peaceful abundance, where riches are counted in terms of sheep and goats. The motif of a shepherd god watching over his flocks recurs centuries later in Christian iconography. Radiating a serene magic, this exquisite intaglio offers the timeless promise of a peaceable kingdom. - (FJ.3254)
