EGYPTIAN FAIENCE STATUE

£300.00

Measurements: 4.4 cm - height

 

Description: A small Egyptian amulet of the goddess Isis. She appears with a dorsal pillar and headdress, a suspension loop to the back. Amulets of Isis were used primarily for protection and were placed on the mummy to aid in the afterlife, being the protective mother goddess. Although this statue is difficult to discern, the headdress is an unmistakable sign that a goddess is in question. As a characteristic headdress of male and female Egyptian deities, she might have been wearing a Double Crown (combined headdress consisting of crown of Upper and Lower Egypt) that the chipped part suggests.

 

Period: Ptolemaic Kingdom.

 

Condition: Small chip to the back of the headdress, otherwise fine.
