Terracotta wall bracket


Not on view

Crowned with the head of a bull, the bracket would probably have been used in a sanctuary to hold a lamp or a container of incense in the trough at the bottom. Such brackets in terracotta and bronze are known in Cyprus during the Late Bronze Age and were widely exported, especially in the area of the Aegean Sea.
