Sculptured Pebble. Aq Kupruk. Balkh Province.
A limestone pebble 6 cm. high from Aq Kupruk II, dating from the Upper Palaeolithic (15th century BCE) was carved with a human face. This work of art is one of the earliest representations of man by man and is possibly the oldest specimen of its king in Asia.
