Kusura-Beycesultan idol

Kusura-Beycesultan type idol of flattened form with rounded pouch-like body, triangular arm stumps, short neck and round head.

Circa 2700-2100 BC

Notes:
The so-called Kusura-Beycesultan type idols mix the features of both sites : the disc shaped head of the Kusura idols and the pouch-like body with small arm stumps of the Beycesultan idols, also known as “violin idols”.
