This bronze figure depicts Baal, god of fertility and crops, capable of producing crops and reproducing people. He is a powerful and destructive god as well as a generator of life, so it was essential to contain the god’s wrath and keep him happy. This god required certain cults, some associated with sexuality within the temples and others by means of human and animal sacrifices. In this case, this figure would be one of the ways of worshipping this god to calm his anger.
