Egyptian Glazed Faience Plaque Seated Sekhmet
Item Details
Description
Ancient Egypt, Third Intermediate to Late Dynastic Period, 21st to 31st Dynasty, ca. 1070 to 332 BCE. A mold-formed faience plaque of a flat form featuring Sekhmet, the lioness-headed goddess of war, military strategy, and healing. Sekhmet faces left presents seated upon a squat chair while holding a fan-shaped object in both hands, perhaps a sistrum. She raises her leonine head proudly with recognizable features such as a perky ear and a pointed nose, and atop her head she wears either a sun disc or the Pschent crown. Enveloped with lustrous blue glaze, this is a wonderful example of Egyptian religious artistry! Size: 0.875" W x 1.375" H (2.2 cm x 3.5 cm)

Cf. The Brooklyn Museum, accession number 05.369

Provenance: private Toronto, Ontario, Canada collection, by descent, acquired in Egypt in 1894 to 1896
