Seller: nyckelharpabuilder (518) 100%, Location: Portland, Oregon, Ships to: US, Item: 332980709335 This carving is upon a dark grey natural stone. It doesn't apear to have had any color added to the surface. It may have had wax applied to simply protect the surface (I have applied nothing to this piece). I believe the very dark choclate (near black) is the natural aged patina of this carving. The carving is quite beautiful and very interesting. It represents Egyptian culture of several millennia in the past. I have absolutely no idea as to the age of this carving. The only thing I can say for sure is that it's heavy and appears to have been carved by hand. My own experience as a woodworker and wood carver indicate the tell tail signs of hand carvings and etchings. The piece is rich with symbolism. I believe the bottom side represents a burial chamber. There is an animal that appears to have been sacrificed. The front of the piece seems to have the image of a king or priest. I don't know my Egyptian symbolism very well. I'm open to hear thoughts and ideas from the Ebay community about the symbolism within this carving. I will package this piece with great care for shipping. Shipping to USA locations only, Lower 48 states only. Shipping Service: USPS., or FedEx. Condition: Absolutely mint conditon. Approximately 3 1/4 inches in length, just under 2 1/4 inches in width, approximately an inch in thickness. This is all stone, and weighs in at 7 ounces (upon my postal scale). There are enough irregularities in the carving that I believe it to be hand carved.The stone is quite dense, and for it's size the 7 ounces it weighs in considerably heavy. There are two holes carved in the top and bottom (See the many photos provided). They do not go through. So it's my thinking that these holes may have served to hold an accompanying decoration. What you see is exactly what you will get. The first photo is of the bottom; The second photo is of the top (domed shape)., Material: Natural Stone, Dark Grey in Color
