|Notes on items||2014-03-30||rAH|| This is purportedly "a human figurine"; photograph V21d4766 could possibly be construed as such a representation. Remember, however: humanoid figurines were meant to be seen in an erect posture, whether they have bases that would permit them to stand or not (think of certain foundation pegs that terminate in a point, not a flat base).
Thus, the photographic documentation should consistently demonstrate the item in a posture that would support the conjecture offered.
V21d4768: the flat portion of the figurine is of interest; is this the actual "back" of the humanoid?
As seen in V21d4769, the puncture in the base (??) of the figurine bears comment. The figurine itself is not hollow; thus, this must've been a receptacle for a stick or dowel that enabled the figurine to stand, as the excavator surmised. This flat surface and its hole do seem an apt termination.
V21d4766 is the most convincing view in support of the claim that this is a humanoid. The "set of small circular scattered holes" on the "back" of the figurine are merely depositional marks; it is important to distinguish such markings from intentional decoration. [Input file: Y401JW1.j]
