Ancient Egypt, New Kingdom to Late Dynastic Period, c. 1570-535 BC. A fantastic and very rare wooden figure of a kneeling worshipper. The features are sensitively carved, and the wood, likely Lebanese cedar, has a gorgeous smooth deep brown patina. The figure is depicted kneeling, with both legs together, a small beg below his toes which would have affixed the piece to a larger shrine or assemblage in ancient times. The arms would have been carved separately below the elbows, and both were lost, however the remains of one was reattached probably in the late 1800’s. The facial details are finely rendered, and overall an exceptional example of the time. Figure itself measures 10.2 cm (4”) tall. With 19th century wooden base (entire piece stands 4 1/8” tall). Purchased at Argosy Art & Artifacts, 10/5/86. #PV028: $2600

Ancient Egyptian Mummy Cartonnage Re-Used as "Papyrus" Writing Paper in Ancient Times! Ancient Egypt, Late Dynastic Period c. 664-30 BC. A group of 4 fragments of decorated cartonnage form an Egyptian mummy sarcophagus. Among the artwork is depicted the goddess Isis with arms outstretched. This sarcophagus was likely pillaged by ancient grave robbers, and the remains were stripped and re-used as "papyrus" writing paper! The language inked on the back has not been deciphered. A fascinating artifact which saw two distinct lives (afterlives?) in antiquity! Largest measures 70x25mm. Ex Washington DC collection, inherited from a family member who acquired these at auction prior to 1970. #AE3203G: $650 for the group SOLD
