Seller: sensationalbliss (785) 100%, Location: Loganville, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 273423846287 I was very excited to find this artifact at an estate sale. In the description you can read my questions to an expert at the Burke Artifact Museum, as well as her interpretations. To the Burke Artifact Museum: Please help me identify this artifact and its cultural significance. The artifact is contained within a shadow box type frame. A photograph has been positioned behind the effigy and appears to be a personal photograph. There was a letter written which was hidden in the back of the inside of the frame. References were made in the letter to the photograph having being taken at the location the artifact was found. I’ve not been able to get in touch with the person who signed the letter. He stated in the letter that he was returning the artifact to his partner/friend because his friend was the one who found it. Please kindly share your thoughts on this piece. Thanks for your help and any comments. Reply: Thank you for contacting the Burke Museum. In my opinion, the figurine appears to be Egyptian. The headdress looks like an atef crown, although it could be another kind of headdress. I cannot make them out very well, but the symbols on the figurine appear as though they could be hieroglyphics. The primary indication that they are likely Egyptian is the oval shape which appears to contain symbols. That particular shape looks very much like an Egpytian cartouche, which would generally contain a name. Please review the photos carefully and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest. Janet
