Bactrian Pre-Historic Column Idol (2nd mill. BC)

Bactria (present northeastern part of Afghanistan). Period: late 3rd - early 2nd millenium BC Height: 29.3cm
A Bactrian soft pink colored hardstone column idol with greyish and black inclusions and veins. A cylindrical body, conical in shape, flaring towards either end, with shallow groove running around the length of the column including the ends.
Such columns remain enigmatic objects: their specific archaeological contexts would suggest that they were prized and important sculptures, probably related to the religious and cult sphere (funerary contexts, sanctuaries). Their extremely discrete and sober form gives them a highly contemporary, abstract connotation.
Condition : Generally fine condition; one end eroded and uneven and a few other surface grazes.
