Mesopotamian matrimonial pottery
Stylized double matrimonial clay drinking vessel with a male riding a horse on either side, the spouts in the middle. Hand painted designs. Buff with a light earthen patina.
Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the mummy. Hieroglyphs and Egyptian symbols on the bottom. A winged beetle and an Egyptian symbol on the top. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarab provided the bearer with the assurance that at the final judgment as depicted in the Book of the Dead, the bearer would be found "True of Voice" and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris. Unusually large and beautiful. 18th Dynasty.
