Palestine unveils Bronze Age 'Thinker' figurine

(MENAFN) A small figurine, almost 4,000 years old and sitting in a pensive pose, has been unveiled in Palestine.

In detail, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said that the thoughtful, hat-wearing figure was discovered in recent excavations in Yehud, east of Tel Aviv.

The ornament topped a jug in the Middle Bronze Age and was found in a grave.

The Times of Israel compared the figure's head-in-hands pose to The Thinker, the famous work by French sculptor Auguste Rodin.
