THE LONG ARTISTIC TRADITION of basalt carving at Hazor is exemplified by these standing stones, or maṣṣ?eboth (singular: maṣṣebah), an offering table, and a crouching lion. Excavated from a single-room Canaanite “Shrine of the Stelae” dated to the 13th century B.C.E., they are on display in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
