Three eye idols from Tell Brak (Syria)

Hundreds of these rather modern-looking figurines were found in a monumental building known as the 'Eye Temple' in Tell Brak, north-eastern Syria The large number found and their size suggests that they were left in the temple as votives (gifts to the gods), perhaps representing the people who dedicated them.
