ca 2112-2004 B.C. This reproduction is inspired by the foundation figure of King Ur-Namma, the king of the Third Dynasty of Ur. On his skirt is inscribed his titles and achievements: Ur-Namma, King of Ur, King of Sumer and Akkad, the one who built the temple of Enlil. He is shown in an act of deep piety. The sculpture gives us a glimpse of royal portraiture by first-rate metropolitan craftsmen of the twenty-first century BC.
