Archaeological excavations at Kultepe-Kanesh, Western Armenian  have uncovered 4,300-year-old sculptures of ten idols made of ten alabaster (gypsum).

Because the origin of this type of idol made of alabaster is considered to be Kultepe, they are called Kultepe-type idols. One-headed idols are believed to represent god or goddess, and two-headed idols represent a divine couple.

The 23,500 cuneiform tablets discovered during archeological excavations in Kultepe-Kanesh since 1948 are considered to be the first written documents of Western Armenia.
