Egyptian Steatite figure of Horus the Falcon wearing the Double Crown, c. 900-600 B.C.
This well preserved ancient sculpture is the upper half of a once larger figure of Horus the Egyptian Falcon God. He is depicted as wearing a tripartite wig and a double crown which symbolized his rule of upper and lower Egypt.
Horus the Falcon God was Egypt’s first national God worshiped by all of Egypt. Since he was associated with, and accepted by, both Lower and Upper Egypt he played an important role in the unification of Egypt circa 3100 BC. He was one of the most important Gods of ancient Egypt, the worship of Horus spanned over 5,000 years, with mention in records from the late pre-dynastic period through to Roman times. The Turin Canon, describes the Predynastic rulers of Egypt as "the Followers of Horus", and the majority of Pharaohs had an image of Horus at the top of their serekh (a stylized palace facade in which one of the king´s names was written).

Mein Fazit: Catawiki lohnt nicht! Versteckte Kosten, keine Reaktion auf Anfragen. Note:NEGATIVSo sorry for your experience with this transaction. It was shipped 2 days late from the US, but reached Germany 5 days later. The rest of the time it was held in German customs.
If it makes you feel any better, I made no money on this sale.
