Sumerian Cosmetic Tool
Carved marble cosmetic tool used for grinding eye make-up, the stylized figure has large button-hole eyes, the top of the head recessed for grinding, the handle to the back. From the earliest of times, men and women included various cosmetic items among their funerary equipment, suggesting that oils, perfumes and eye-paints were regarded as virtual necessities. The history of cosmetics goes back thousands of years. The bible, for example, describes the practice of anointing the head and body with oil.
