Uehlinger, Christoph (2010). Gottheiten, Genien, Mischwesen: geflügelte Mythologie aus dem Alten Orient. In: Rutishauser, Werner. Mit fremden Federn : antike Vogeldarstellungen und ihre Symbolik. Schaffhausen & München: Museum zu Allerheiligen & Hirmer Verlag, 34-47.

Abstract

Prompted by an exhibition of objects mostly from the Ebnoether collection housed at the Museum zu Allerheiligen in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, the article discusses various devices to represent and distinguish several types and classes of winged beings of 'supernatural' character in ancient Near Eastern iconography. Illustrating examples are mostly drawn from first-millennium BCE bronzework, originating from south-eastern Anatolia (Urartu and neighbouring North Syrian regions).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
