a photo of a funerary stele from Marash with a woman holding a mirror.
Note that this is a pdf file (also that it is an article from BAR).
Apart from funerary stele, the BM has a Neo-Hittite stele with a
representation of Kubaba holding a mirror
mirror was a symbol of Kubaba, but whether this has any connection with
the funerary stele or not I don't know.
- Dear Miguel, I did locate two stelae from Marash that show females holding a mirror; however, the photographs are in publications. (1) Ekrem Akurgal, The Art of Greece. Its Origins in the...(New York, 1966), plate 28 (daughter with mirror). (2) Id. The Art of the Hittites ( London, 1962), fig. 139 (wife with mirror). Of course, there are other examples of mirrors held by women/goddesses in the art of the Neo-Hittite period. My best,
