Dolerite statue of Gudea, ruler of Lagash. Upper part of standing figure with head; carved and polished mottled green dolerite; but neck restored; represents Gudea, king of Lagash. It is possible that the head and body were not originally part of a single statue. From Girsu (modern Telloh), southern Mesopotamia, Iraq. Reign of Gudea, circa 2130 BCE.
