from.this mysterious Iranian source was presumed rather than demonstrated.33 In locating the origins of the Scythian animal style in Iran, he had adopted what was, or would soon become, a minority position, midway between those who argued for Ionian (Farmakovskii, Ebert, and Schefold) and for central Asian origins (Minns, Borovka, and others).34 Nevertheless, in his 1929 attention to detail was probably based on comparisons with animal art from Mesopotamian sites where he had previously excavated. The Mesopotamian sites had yielded innumerable small exquisitely modelled objects executed realistically, some in precious metals.

It is at the same time written for zoologists to introduce them to the world of art and folklore of the same South Asia. The contact zone between the three disciplines—indology, art history and zoology—has been meagrely explored, which is regretful considering the potential

Stated in a more direct way, In the light of our pending discussion on Arabian Gulf material with a distinct Bactrian Margianan flavour, but apparently locally manufactured in the different Gulf areas themselves, I feel, that we should take Walid Yasin alTikriti's notion of a possible local production of the gold, electrum and silver pendants from the United Arab Emirates into serious consideration and view them as being of local workmanship but quite emphatically influenced by the Central Asian animal art.
