Archaeology/Chalcolithic & Canaanite Periods

Canaanite art in this period consisted mainly of small-scale stone sculptures, ivory and bone carvings, pottery and metal figurines, and seals and jewelry. The works reflect a fusion of foreign and Canaanite elements executed in the local artistic style.This basalt relief, which stood in a large building at Beth Shean, is one of the few monumental stone-carvings of the period. It is outstanding example of Canaanitenarrative art - story-telling in pictures
