Museum-Exhibited Egyptian Silver Amulet of Hathor
Item Details
Description
Egypt, Late Dynastic to Ptolemaic Period, ca. 664 to 30 BCE. A beautiful, cast silver amulet of Hathor - the goddess of music, love, dance, and motherhood, and one of the oldest Egyptian deities dating back to the Old Kingdom period (ca. 2686 to 2181 BCE) - shown in a customary striding pose with her left leg advanced and donning her traditional headdress comprised of cow horns and a solar disc over her tripartite wig. The piece has developed a wonderful age patina, and nice details remain. In addition to the aforementioned cow horn headdress and tripartite wig, we can see the goddess' wide-open eyes, straight nose, ample breasts, and concave navel. An integral loop behind her head allows for suspension. Size: 0.4" W x 1.9" H (1 cm x 4.8 cm); 2.25" H (5.7 cm) on included custom stand; silver quality: 94.61%; weight: 12.4 grams
