Pirhiya Beck came to a similar conclusion several years ago regarding the H|orvat Qitmit assemblage. She identified Phoenician elements and various Transjordanian traditions in the iconographic material from Qitmit and proposed that the human figures cannot be the work of Judahite artists but may be the work of Edomite or other foreign pagan artisans; see Pirhiya Beck, “Catalogue of Cult Objects and Study of the Iconography,” in Itzhaq Beit-Arieh, ed., H|orvat Qitmit. An Edomite Shrine in the Biblical Negev, Institute of Archaeology Monograph 11 (Tel Aviv: Tel Aviv Univ., 1995), p. 189. We agree with her conclusion.
