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).

Provenance: French collection, acquired in a Paris gallery in the 1970s. A certificate of Authenticity will be provided with this purchase

This piece comes with a purpose built 4cm high stand.

    So 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.

  • I want to cancel this order which was not shipped or received. Also Order 9874899 did have a nib. A nib was shown on the sale ad. Please let me know next steps how to return. I will let Amex know.

    Carmen,
    I sincerely apologize for this. Usually we ship the same day we receive payment. For some reason your package was packaged and labeled but was never sent.

    I double checked and the nib IS included.
    Please let me know what you want to do. I would be more than happy to overnight this to you, or give you a full refund.
  • Thank you.

    Shouts out 'Imperial' throughout. Extremely happy with the Coronation Egg. Full marks on packaging, reliable seller.

    I'm going to request that this feedback is removed. This customer is disgruntled that he had to pay customs tax per the laws of his country. Not my fault.
