The Inandik vase

I have so many pictujres of this object (in differing light and with differing corrections) I decided to put all pictures in one galley, as a sub-gallery of the Anatolian museum.

Inandık is situated about 100 km northwest of Hatuşa/Boğazköy. This settlement mount was occupied from the EBA to the Iron Age and yielded substantial layers from the Old Hittite period (16th century BC). A few hundred meters to the west of the site proper, a large multiroomed building complex was found sitting on a ridge. Destroyed in a violent conflagration, a unique Old Hittite cult inventory was preserved in its ruins. It consisted of many vessels of superb make, among them the famous ‘Inandık vase’ with relief depiction of cult scenes.
