Canaanite Prisoner Scene

There is an interesting article related to a find by a six year old child at Tel Jemmah/Gama near the Gaza border in The Times of Israel here. Supposedly, it is "3,500-year-old depiction of a naked, humiliated Canaanite prisoner and his victorious warden." The clay artifact found in March is mold-made, and measures 2.80 x 2.80 centimeter (1.1 inch square). It was apparently found in March.
