Materials to Construct 3. Purpose or Meaning of the artwork. Votive Figures 1. Abu Temple, Tell Asmar, Iraq (Mesopotamia) 2. Soft stone, alabaster and marble 3. Some represent the Gods, but most ae devotional figures that represent the townspeople of Tell Asmar in the act of worshiping their local deities. The larger figures may be priests, and the smaller figures, laypersons. Their large eyes, inlaid with shell, lapis lazuli, and black limestone, convey the impression of dread and awe, visual testimony to the sense of human apprehension in the face of divine power. These images express the insecurity of a people whose vulnerability was an ever-present fact of life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
