The 14-inch-tall, 12th-century B.C. bronze figurine shown at left was found on the island of Cyprus—perhaps indicating that Sardinian/Shardana migrants stopped at Cyprus on their way east. The 7-inch-tall, eighth-century B.C. “praying archer” statue, found on Sardinia, is clearly from the same artistic tradition.
