RARE SUMERIAN PAZUZU HEAD GOLD PENDANT - XRF TESTED

Lot 0352 Details

Description
C. 3500 BC. Sumerian. Gold head comprising a grotesque head with prominent nose and grimacing mouth, depicting Pasuzu. In ancient Sumerian religion, Pasuzu was king of the demons and the wind, as well as the bearer of storms. This pendant may have once belonged to a worshipper of this powerful and malevolent figure. In order to confirm its authenticity, this piece has undergone X-Ray Fluorescence analysis by an independent Belgian Laboratory. The samples collected show the chemical composition to reflect the typical metal contents of the described period, whilst also showing no modern trace elements in the patina. Excellent condition; wearable. Size: L:21mm / W:18mm ; 11.5g; Provenance: Property of a professional Ancient art and jewelry expert; previously with a London gallery; initially from a private British collection formed in the 1990s.
