$500.00 0 Bids Unsold

Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263842011332 LOT 3ASeller's Estimate: USD 900 - 1,400 Egypt, Late Dynastic to Ptolemaic Period, ca. 664 to 30 BCE. An elegant pendant, mold-formed from blue-green faience, depicting a powerful symbol of rebirth in the Goddess Isis nursing her son, Horus, at her breast. The wife of Osiris rests upon a small throne and wears an ankle-length skirt, with one hand to her exposed breast and the other supporting her son's head and dons her traditional black-painted vulture headdress of the Goddess Mut. What's unusual about this pendant is the presentation of Isis wearing the Pschent (or double) crown rather than her typical hieroglyphic-style throne headdress. The Pschent crown is typically worn by the adolescent Horus, symbolizing his unification of and rule over Upper and Lower Egypt, so a depiction of his Mother wearing this crown is quite intriguing and exceedingly rare! Custom wooden display stand included. Size: 1.2" L x 0.625" W x 2.375" H (3 cm x 1.6 cm x 6 cm); 3.375" H (8.6 cm) on included custom stand.
