The ten figures, which include bulls, two archers, and a goat, had been exposed to the weather and covered in dust and dirt, but they were in good condition. “Some of the details are unique [and unlike anything] across the entire Mediterranean Basin,” Inés Domingo Sanz of the University of Barcelona told The Art Newspaper.
