Description
Egypt, Late Period (XXVI Dynasty) to Ptolomeic 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 cowhorn 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. Silver quality: 94.61%. Size: 0.4" W x 1.9" H (1 cm x 4.8 cm); 2.25" H (5.7 cm) on included custom stand; 12.4 grams
