Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263887303386 LOT 11Seller's Estimate: USD 1,000 - 1,500 Egypt, Late Dynastic to Roman Period, ca. 664 BCE to 2nd century CE. A lovely mold-formed head of a mane-less male lion formed from pale-blue faience. The zoomorphic head is composed of perky ears, a rounded brow with a top crest, puffy cheeks, button-shaped eyes within recessed sockets, a flush triangular nose, and a large mouth with grooved lips and whiskers. The lion is an important and powerful symbol in ancient Egypt, representing power, lethality, and supremacy within the food chain; however, feline deities were more often depicted as female lionesses rather than male lions. Lions in Roman mythology were more closely related to the myth of Hercules who, during the first of his twelve labors, slayed the Nemean Lion with his bare hands. Custom felt-lined display frame included. Size (lion): 2.5" W x 2.75" H (6.4 cm x 7 cm); size (frame): 8.375" W x 9.125" H (21.3 cm x 23.2 cm).
