Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263781346285 LOT 15Seller's Estimate: USD 1,500 - 2,250 Egypt, Romano-Egyptian period, probably made near Alexandria, ca. 30 BCE to 2nd century CE. A tall, mold-made votive statue of a woman standing with a male child. The woman has a mask-like face and a large, curved headdress with a stippled surface. The child is nude and holds onto the woman's skirt with one hand; in the other hand, he holds an oinochoe or similarly-shaped vessel. Both figures stand atop an integral base. Who are the figures represented here? They are most likely the goddess Isis-Hathor and the god Harpocrates, who in many Romano-Egyptian works of art are depicted as mother and son. Size: 5.2" W x 9.75" H (13.2 cm x 24.8 cm); 12.2" H (31 cm) on included custom stand. During the Ptolemaic period, Isis-Hathor, Serapis (not pictured here), and Harpocrates formed the Triad of Alexandria, and in 2011 the Egyptian office of archaeology announced that they had found the ruins of a Ptolemaic temple containing many similar figures. The British Museum exhibit on Naukratis shows the remains of terracotta molds for making models just like this one; they were made from a dark red-brown Nile silt in vast workshops. These figures were made for locals, but reflected the influence of Greek naturalistic styles in their depictions of the deities. They were bought by individuals and are found overwhelmingly in domestic contexts.
