Ancient Egyptian "Ptolemaic Isis as Queen Relief"

Sold on eBay by seller "A"
Winning bid: US $569.00

The 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.
