A THRONE IN 3-D. Two figures are seated on a double throne in this terra-cotta piece published by Christoph Uehlinger. This gives some idea of what the throne in the BAR naos might have looked like if it had included the inhabitants of the throne. The absence of figures on the BAR naos throne is especially significant in an Israelite context, since graven images were prohibited by the Hebrew Bible.
