Abstract

A rare stone statue found in Gorny Altai and associated with the Ancient Turkic culture is described. Most Ancient Turkic statues in the Sayan-Altai and in Central Asia in general represent male warriors. This statue, however, depicts a female. Research is relevant to the understanding of Eastern Turkic funerary ritual.
