One expert on the subject of horse domestication, David Anthony, says he will go no further than suggesting that the sculpture at al‑Magar ‘might be’ from the horse genus.”To sum up, al‑Maqar is a location where human presence is attested at least from the Middle Palaeolithic down to the Protohistoric period.Besides, the Middle Holocene occupation is clearly a major discovery, shedding light on a culture whose features were only partly known up to now.
Much has been written on the topic and our intention is not so much to produce a new synthesis as to underline the progressive shift of horse domestication along a north‑south axis, starting in central Asia and the Eurasian steppes, and progressively reaching the Middle East, Egypt, and then Arabia.
This date is asserted after the presence of specific types of arrowheads and four fragments of bones, whose collagen was radiocarbon dated to c. Yet, the exact provenance of these organic samples is unknown, and as stated by others the relationship between the stone figures, the arrowheads and radiocarbon samples is not clear“The evidence from the 86‑centimetre‑long fragment spotted by Gublan is tantalisingly inconclusive.
The carving features a rounded head, arched neck, muzzle, nostrils, shoulder, withers and overall proportions that are clearly horse‑like.
The animal sculptures could be part of this occupation and some of them definitely depict equids.
However neither the presence of horses in this part of Arabia nor their domestication 3,000 years earlier than expected can be proved on the basis of the sculptures on site.
