Sardinian two archers joined by a root, 9th-7th century B.C. The root is that of a particularly sturdy species [1] that is wont to grow over certain inland regions of Sardinia. Amazingly, though unfortunately now drying out and possibly over a millennium in age, it has grown through the two statuettes breaking them off the limestone block on which they would have been fixed with lead by the tangs under their feet, 15 cm and 14 cm high.

Sardinian bronze Capotribu, Chief of the herdsmen, 10th-7th century B.C. Such Capitribu have been variously interpreted as being the representations of a Nuragic prince, a shepherd-king, a tribal chieftain, or simply as chief of the herdsmen, which we prefer. Sardinian society at the time was aristocratic and feudal. We ignore the distinction between the local prince and the local religious leader, 24.5 cm high. George Ortiz collection
