  • Egyptian Wood THOTH Baboon Pendant, c. 600 B.C.
  • Date & Origin: Egypt, c. 600 B.C.
  • Carved in relief, seated, crescent and sundisk crown over his head.
    The baboon was closely associated with the god of wisdom, science and measurement, As Thoth's sacred animal, the baboon was often shown directing scribes in their task. As Thoth was a god of the moon, his baboons were often shown wearing the crescent moon on their head.. However, the baboon was also considered a solar animal by the ancient Egyptians. This may be due to the animals habit of screeching at daybreak or because of their practice of warming themselves in the early morning sun. The ancient Egyptians believed these were signs that the baboon worshipped the sun.
