The Ram in a Thicket, from Ur, southern Iraq, c2600-c2400 BC

Detail of the Ram in a Thicket, from Ur, southern Iraq, c2600-c2400 BC. One of an almost identical pair discovered by Leonard Woolley in the Great Death Pit, one of the Royal Graves in the cemetery at Ur. It was named by Woolley after the biblical reference in Genesis 22:13; God ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac, but at the last moment Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son'. The ram is more accurately described as a goat. From the British Museum's collection
