520    "This book examines the sculptures created during the 
       Early Dynastic period (2900-2350 BC) of Sumer, a region 
       corresponding to present-day southern Iraq. Featured 
       almost exclusively in temple complexes, some 550 Early 
       Dynastic stone statues of human figures carved in an 
       abstract style have survived. Chronicling the intellectual
       history of ancient Near Eastern art history and 
       archaeology at the intersection of sculpture and 
       aesthetics, this book argues that the early modern 
       reception of Sumer still influences ideas about these 
       sculptures. Engaging also with the archaeology of the 
       Early Dynastic temple, the book ultimately considers what 
       a stone statue of a human figure has signified, both in 
       modern times and in antiquity"--|cProvided by publisher.
