Egyptian Glazed Faience Amulet - Triad of Alexandria
Item Details
Description
Egypt, Alexandria, Late Dynastic to Ptolemaic Period, ca. 664 to 30 BCE. A fabulous mold-formed faience amulet covered in attractive turquoise-hued glaze. The amulet depicts the triad of Harpokrates (translated as "Horus the child") in the middle, his mother Isis to his left, and Isis' sister Nephthys, goddess of sleep and night, on his right. All three figures stand nude atop an integral plinth and hold hands in a symbol of cohesiveness. An integral suspension tube on the verso suggests that this pendant was worn on a necklace, a bracelet, or woven into the linen wrappings of a mummy. Size: 0.625" W x 0.9" H (1.6 cm x 2.3 cm)

Cf. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, accession number 17.194.2444

Provenance: private Corpus Christi, Texas, USA estate collection, acquired 1960s to 1970s

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
