Double-headed Bird Creatures in Third Millennium Mesopotamian Iconography

Boekbijdrage - Hoofdstuk

Museum curator and university professor, archaeologist, art historian, and epicurean; Eric Gubel, whose field work mostly focused on the Levantine region, has always been exploring the horizons of the past in two directions: Mesopotamia in the east and the Mediterranean world to the west. No better person to dedicate a contribution to on the Mesopotamian double-headed bird creatures. The Museum of Art and History in Brussels and the University of Leuven keep 3rd millennium BC cylinder seals that depict this well-known and throughout history widespread motif. They belong to the oldest known examples of this image.
