Ancient Egyptian artifacts statue
Bronze seated cat. The earliest Egyptian depiction of the cat took the form of three hieroglyphic symbols, each representing seated cats. These formed part of the phrase ‘Lord of the City of Cats’ inscribed on a stone block from El-Lisht that may date as early as the reign of Pepy II, 2278-2184 BC. The Egyptian word for cat was the onomatopoeic term miw. Covered in a green patina with a light earthen encrustation. 26th Dynasty.
Carved solid white marble well-dressed female, the robe beautifully tied to the waist, three-strand necklace, elaborate crown, smiling face, the left hand raised with a now missing item, the right arm missing, the legs hidden. Very rare.
