Seller: hix.antiquitatis (713) 100%, Location: New York, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 282460953820 Egyptian Inscribed Plaque An ancient Egyptian steatite inscribed plaque bearing images of a god flanked by women on one side, and a figure flanked by a falcon and a person on the other. New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty, ca. 1411-1375 BC. Height: 25 mm. The ancient Egyptians believed the Scarabeus Beetle was able to spontaneously regenerate itself from cow dung, which these beetles can be observed rolling into small balls and burying. Consequently the scarab came to symbolize a spontaneous continuation of the life cycle. These finely carved amulets were worn in life and in necklaces around the mummy. Often the bases were inscribed with symbols or "words of power," intended to magically invigorate the wearer. Formerly in the Ernest C. Freemark collection, (1882-1966), Elmore, Ohio, examined by J. H. Breasted in 1916.#6425GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBEDHIXENBAUGH ANCIENT ART, NEW YORKMember: Appraisers Association of America (AAA) Art and Antique Dealers League of America (AADLA) Confederation Internationale des Negociants en Oeuvres d'Art (CINOA)See our 'about me' page for our credentials and expertise.
