Is this what Ahab looked like?

Statuette Ahab from Abel Beth Maacah

Statuette possibly of King Ahab

Who hasn’t heard of Ahab (and his evil wife Jezebel), king of Israel at the time of #Elijah in the 9th century B.C.? Here is a first ever idea of what he may have looked like! Kinda cool I’d say! This exquisite faience head (courtesy of the Israel Museum) was found inside the royal citadel at Evel Beit Maachah in upper Galilee, a biblical city, part of the northern kingdom of #Israel, and is actually dated to the time of Ahab. And if it’s not Ahab then it’s probably some other super important VIP and gives a great idea about royal hairdos and styling at the time.. Early 1970’s anyone?? Join me here in Israel and let me show you the real thing! Shalom, Zack
