I'm sure I've seen these before, on some palette or such from Egypt..? I know there is a purse carrying Assyrian God but the way these 3 'bags' are, does anyone recognise them from something else?
Also, on this website here: http://www.earthfile...ategory=Science you can see a picture of the complete 'man', with the duck 'altar' at the base.
I have to admit the bird-figure on the monument is somewhat reminiscent of the bird-figures on the Sumerian monument known as the Stela of the Vultures. Whether this implies any real cross-cultural transference is another matter, given the great span of time between Göbekli Tepe and Sumer.
