A Levantine bronze plaque depicting a hunting scene | c. 1000 - 600 Century BC | Depicting a nude male with cloak trailing behind attacking a large boar; a tree behind the boar, fish above and below. The entire scene resembles a roll-out from a cylinder seal and is bordered above and below by a dotted line. Measures L: 1 1/3 in (3.5cm). Very attractive with a nice contrasting patina. Mounted on a custom lucite base. Ex-collection of Dr. Ammon Rosenfeld, Jerusalem. The Levant (/l__v¾nt/; Arabic: _______ [_alma_riq]) is an approximate historical geographical term referring to a large area in the Eastern Mediterranean. In its narrowest sense it is equivalent to the historical region of Syria. In its widest historical sense, the Levant included all of the eastern Mediterranean with its islands, that is, it included all of the countries along the Eastern Mediterranean shores, extending from Greece to Cyrenaica.
