Lot 0042 Details

Description
A rarely offered Egyptian terracotta offering tray, c. 18000 - 1400 BC, roughly ovoid in shape with low pinched walls, the interior slightly convex with two arms and hands impressed by a finger resembling a 'Ka' sign. 11 3/4 x 10 1/2 in (29.6 x 26.5 cm). Light deposits and traces of red slip. Ex London, UK private collection acquired in the 1970's-80's.

Offering tables such as this were burial items, intended for use by the deceased in the afterlife. Other objects were likely originally included on this offering tray to aid the deceased. Offering ranged from fairly simple, such as this example, to extremely elaborate, such as those commonly referred to as 'soul houses', which were modeled into the form of a home along with the offerings.
