ANIMAL HEAD WITH HUMAN BODY IN COLOSSAL POST-PALEOLITHIC SCULPTURE
Fig. 18A1) Post-paleolithic sculpture of an artistic man-animal hybrid.
The drawing depicts a man with a dog's head, representing the God Amida on the horse and several people below, one of whom is offering and another is on his knees in prayer.
The sculpture was probably made of wood or metal.
Its location is in a temple, placed on an altar.
Size: evident from the people who are below.
(from "Journey around the world", Venice, 1841).
