Egypt – Late Dynastic Period, 6th century BC

Green faience

The baboon is seated on a rounded base and is holding a Wedjat-eye in his hands. The thick coat is rendered in fine detail and the voluminous mane wraps like a pelerine around its shoulders.
Thoth was worshipped as the god of wisdom, but also as the moon god. Here, he holds the left so-called Udjat eye in his hands, which symbolizes the moon, while the right Udjat eye symbolizes the solar god.
