The James L. Walker
"Man with a Turban"


VDLx03 – October 3, 2001 – G. Buccellati

This head of a small figurine dates to the Khabur period, and was found in a pottery kiln where a number of vesseles and figurines were being fired.

The bright colors are typical of the ceramics of this period (about 1800-1600 B.C.).

The kiln was to the south of a residential area that developed after the Royal Palace of Tupkish was abandoned. It was excavated by James L. Walker.
