Plough, Asia Minor, c 2000-1500 BC.

Model (scale 1:16) of a very early type of plough pulled by oxen, based on a sculpture from an ancient monument. Such ploughs were usually constructed from a suitably shaped branch, with the digging point probably fitted with an ox horn or shod with flint, bronze or iron.
