Anthropomorphic stone statues, discovered near Taldy-Suu, the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan, are described with reference to the earlier (19th to early 21st century) scholarship, and are attributed to the Old Turkic tradition. One of them shows a male warrior. We focus on his costume, belt, weapons, and the vessel held in his right hand. The other statue is of a woman. The chronology and cultural affi nities, specifi cally in relation to Old Turkic statues of other areas of the Tian Shan, are assessed.
