    Small clay figurine of an animal, possibly a wild pig. The people who lived at Çatalhöyük were experimenting with breeding and domesticating both cattle and pigs. They also hunted deer and other animals. Sheep and goats, however, were fully domesticated at the site. Figurines of humans have also been found. The purpose of such a figurine is very much open to interpretation. This figurine was found in 2002 in one of the small rooms (Space 89) just south of Building 3, by Tatiana Stevanova, a Bulgarian member of the BACH team.
