Насчет времени изготовления может, и более позднее, чем 3000 BC. Уж больно хорошо качество бронзовой фигуры (мышьяковистая бронза)..

Proto-Elamite Arsenical Copper Striding Figure with Ibex Horns, a Raptor Skin Draped Around the Shoulders, and Upturned Boots<input ... >

Arsenical copper, ca. 3000 B.C.E., From Iran or Mesopotamia

This solid-cast sculpture is one of a pair of nearly identical images of a hero or demon wearing the upturned boots associated with highland regions, his power enhanced by the mighty horns of the ibex on his head and the body and wings of a bird of prey draped around his shoulders. It was created at the time the first cities emerged in ancient Sumer. A new world view conceived of human figures in realistic terms, through accurate proportions and highly modeled forms with distinctive features--here, the tripe belt and beard that define divine beings and royalty.

This extraordinary ibex-headed figure of wood, originally covered with gesso and coloured paint and representing one of the more obscure deities of the Underworld, is of an exceptionally rare type found at only one site in Egypt—the Valley of the Kings. The findspot of the piece is sadly not recorded, but a provenance may perhaps be ventured. Several series of such figures are known, from the tombs of Amenhotep II, Thutmose IV, Tutankhamun, Horemheb, Ramesses I, Seti I and Ramesses IX—and of these images the characteristics of only the last group, now in the British Museum, match the physical make-up of the Chiddingstone specimen. ] Chiddingstone Castle

Horned Clay Figure 600-500 BC Cypro-Archaic II

This horned character’s closest parallels are of a toy centaur of the type that would have wheels and a hole for a stick to be inserted to push it around centaur. However there are representations of horned gods in this region that may also be represented by this figure.
