Israeli boy finds biblical-era figurine in the Negev
The figurine is an amulet that was believed to protect children or increase fertility, according to archaeologists, who say only one other exists in the National Treasures collection.
An 11-year-old Israeli boy has uncovered a rare, 2,500-year-old amulet during a family excursion in the northern Negev Desert, the Israel Antiquities Authority said on Tuesday.
Zvi Ben-David of Beersheva came across the pottery figurine in Nahal Besor. He showed it to his mother, a professional tour guide, who contacted the IAA.According to Oren Shmueli, the IAA’s district archaeologist for the western Negev, the statuette, depicting a bare-breasted woman wearing a scarf, was believed to protect children or increase fertility.“The figurine that Zvi discovered is rare and only one such example exists in the National Treasures collection,” said Shmueli and Debbie Ben-Ami, curator of the Iron Age and Persian periods for the IAA. “It was probably used in the sixth to fifth centuries BCE, at the end of the Iron Age or in the Persian period [the late First Temple period].”
