BRONZE STATUETTE OF ISIS, 26THDYNASTY
Very nice egyptian bronze statuette representing Isis nursing Horus (obviously, Horus is missing...) dedicated "Isis gives life to Imen-irdis son of Pa-di-hor", inscribed on the base.
She is sitted wearing the tight dress, a tripartite wig with the uraeus, the solar disk and the horns. The wig is adorned with the volture finely incised.
Beautiful details and facial expression.
