Human and animal statuettes found at Burnt City

65 human and animal statuettes, and various pots and shards, have been uncovered in Iran’s Burnt City, Tappeh Dasht.

Since most of the statuettes are broken, the archaeologists surmise that they were scrap, he explained.

One of the statuettes depicts a pregnant woman and another is of a man wearing ornaments like a necklace, Mortazavi stated.

“Some of the statuettes are Sistani bull, which is believed to be respected in the region 5000 years ago,” he added.
