terracotta, afgevormd, h 10.6cm × w 6.2cm. More details

These reliefs were cheap, mass-produced objects, derived, however, from deluxe ivory models. Exceptionally, the original moulds for both reliefs are also preserved. They may have been patacons, earthenware decorations that were baked in the dough of festive loaves of bread that were eaten around Christmas and New Year’s Day.
