Ancient Egyptian Ushabtis
Blue glazed faience Ushabti with ten rows of hieroglyphics to the front panel. In the shape of a mummy with hoe and pick, a tripartite wig that falls on top of the rectangular back pillar, braided chin beard. Often called "Servants of the Afterlife", Ushabtis were placed in the tomb of the Mummy and were intended to be servants that would magically come to life and do any chore the Mummy might be called upon to perform in the afterlife. 26th Dynasty.
Ancient and antique Asian antiquities and antiques statue
Carved dark green Jade statue of a Foo Dog resting on top of a ball, a string in his mouth, the surface with incised geometrics and Chinese writings. Foo Dogs are really lions, the proud Mother of the feline race. Although lions were not indigenous to China, lion artwork and sculptures were imported gifts to the emperor. Later introduced in Chinese primitive art, the lion became associated with Buddhism as the defender of law and protector of sacred buildings. Covered in an earthen patina.
