9,500-year-old figurines found in Israel

Two 9,500-year-old stone figurines depicting a ram and an ox have been found near Jerusalem.

One of the objects is shaped like a ram and made of limestone. The other depicts an ox and is made of dolomite. Both are 15 centimeters (5.9 inches) long.

Wednesday’s statement says the figurines could have been either good luck hunting icons or a representation of the animal’s domestication.
