This unfired-clay sculpture dating from the second century B.C. will be featured in the 2008-2009 U.S. exhibition of "Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul.
The object was found at the former Greek city of Ao Khanum, in a region of Afghanistan conquered by Alexander the Great.
The archaeological finds from Ao Khanum reflect the Mediterranean influence in the region between the fourth and second centuries B.C.
The Afghan treasures will be shown at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. They are also tentatively set to visit the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
