14. The Woman and The Seed Tour, The Met Striding Figure

Figure with curved shoes probably from the time of Babel.  The first thing I thought of when I saw this was elves, because elves are depicted with those curved shoes plus those pointy beards and here I thought someones imagination was just running wild and here you find out that there is nothing new under the sun.  This I think was the oldest figurine that they have at the Met.


P.S.  Added better photo from the Met archives.
