Exquisite Canaanite Terracotta Idol of a Sacrificial Ram, ca. 1400 BCE. 3" x 1 3/4" x 4 1/2". Intact and in excellent condition. Very old collection label with "Caaninite" misspelled. Ex: Christie's New York. Probable used for a Cultic ritual ceremony involving the sacrifice of a ram. Artifact is contemporaneous with sacrifice of a ram by Abraham in lieu of his son Isaac (Genesis 22) No single geographical definition for the land of Canaan exists in the Bible (Num. 34:2–12; Ezek. 47:13–20; 48:1–7, 23–29) or in other sources. The term occasionally indicates an extensive area encompassing all of Palestine and Syria, while at other times it is confined to a strip of land along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean (for the southern boundary, see Josh. 15:2–4, and for the northern boundary, see Josh. 19:24–31).
