Excavations at Tell Tayinat in southeastern Turkey uncovered a monumental human sculpture from the ancient city of Kunulua, the capital of the Neo-Hittite Kingdom of Patina in the early first millennium B.C.E. The Tayinat Archaeological Project uncovered the five-foot tall head and torso along with a decorated column base; parts of a full statue that likely stood over 12 feet tall. The figure features inlaid stone eyes, elegantly styled hair, a beard, and the arms hold a spear and shaft of wheat.
