Description
A stunning Egyptian limestone stele, Third Intermediate Period, Dynasties XXI-XXIII, c. 1080-750 BC, depicting a winged sun disk with pendant cobras appearing above three registers, each depicting a pair of rams sniffing lotus flowers. The ram with curved horns had been associated with the cult of Amun since Dynasty XI and likely carries the same association with this stele, H: 11 3/8 in (29cm), W: 10 in (25.3 cm). A fantastic example of Egyptian cult worship. Ex Ashraf Eldarir Collection, USA, acquired prior to 1948. Ashraf Eldarir's grandfather was a friend of Prince of Egypt Omar Tosson, with whom he shared a passion for archaeology. The collection was formed during the 1930s-1940s, mostly as gifts from Prince Tosson. The collection was moved to the United States in 1948 and remained in the family's possession until the present day.
