The Shihan Relief depicts a bare-chested man holding a spear. This warrior figure wears a kilt and headdress with a long streamer or braid ending in a curl that extends down his back. An animal is depicted below this curl. This scene, which displays Egyptian influences, was chiseled out of a larger basalt stele. The Shihan relief fragment was discovered in Jordan in 1851 and is now at the Louvre.
