Item Details
Description
An Egyptian Large Pale Green Glazed Scarab, Late Period, Dynasty 26, ca. 664 - 525 BCE, ca. 664 - 525 BC:
Medium: Glazed Steatite
Representing Khepri, the god of the rising sun, this large, pale, green-glazed faience scarab is a fine example. The body conforms to the scarabaeus sacer; where the eyes and head are deeply carved on the five notched shield (clypeus). The first segment of the upper body (prothorax) and wings (elytrae) are separated by fine, carefully incised line, the legs (tibiae) to the side, are tucked underneath the body. As is to be expected, this heart scarab has no bore hole and the base is uninscribed.Literature: Andrews, Carol, Amulets of Ancient Egypt (University of Texas Press, 1994), p. 50-59 (chapter 4: Scarabs for the living and funerary scarabs)

Dimensions: Height: 1.5 inches (3.81 cm)
Reference No: 004

PROVENANCE: Private NYC collection, ex. CT collection, ex. John N. Winnie, Jr. collection, Georgia, acquired 1980’s-90’s.
