The Bronze Age

Well, perhaps not exactly the Bronze Age.

I'm reading an archaeological book on Alexander The Great, and on page 103 is this unusual bronze plaque, now in the collection of the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

OK, but one wonders, was this made from life? And what is that funny three-cornered hat?

Now that you say that, there is some resemblance to a moose...kind of a sad-looking moose. Big long nose and droopy antlers.
