Ancient Egyptian "Ptolemaic Isis as Queen Relief"
Sold on eBay
by seller "A"
above listed item is from the Ptolemaic Period,(332-30B.C.E.). This
beautiful "Isis as Queen Relief" shard was carved from limestone
and was detailed in paints. We acquired this scarce item from a select
private collection and its provenance is Alexandria, Egypt. Depicted
is the goddess Isis with arms outstreched. She is wearing a royal Deshret
crown with Nekbhet vulture goddess headdress, bare breasted, bare footed
and in a long priestess-like skirt. This was once a section of a larger
tomb or temple panel. This fragment relief is intact, has retained its
black, powder blue and orange paints and has age wear. The reason for
the item being available is due to the vast extent of archeological
findings, thousands of years in Egyptian burials and also the proliferation
of these said items in older private collections worldwide. The timeline
on our items is a suggestive guideline for the listed Egyptian Period.
