Rare Bronze-age 4,000 Year Old “Thinker” Statue Found In Israel

A unique 3,800-year-old Bronze Age statue has been unearthed by a team of archaeologists in Israel. According to Gilad Itach, the excavation director at the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), the 8-inch-tall figurine sitting upon a jug was unearthed at a site in the town of Yehud. ‘It seems that at first the jug, which is typical of the period, was prepared, and afterwards the unique sculpture was added, the likes of which have never before been discovered in previous research. The level of precision and attention to detail in creating this almost 4,000-year-old sculpture is extremely impressive. The neck of the jug served as a base for forming the upper portion of the figure, after which the arms, legs, and a face were added to the sculpture. One can see that the face of the figure seems to be resting on its hand as if in a state of reflection.’
