32" Egyptian Funerary Panel W/ Uraeus Design!
Relics of the Nile is pleased to present this superb ancient Egyptian funerary panel. This piece is from the top portion of either a funerary box such as an ushabti box or canopic box or from the back of a chair. The peg holes that attached the piece to the remainder of the funerary piece are still present. This is a funerary piece as is displayed by the colors and styles used, as well as the display of the solar disc with royal uraeus. This is a symbol of royalty, however in this case it is more a tribute to royalty or the king rather than as a possession of an actual royal member. The colors are very vibrant as presented in red, blue, white, black, and others. An additional item of interest is the sheer size of this piece. Each ureaus (cobra/snake) stands side-by-side with the solar disc on its head. The piece stretches for 32.25" in length! The design continues to what was part of a floral design on the top of the snakes. All colors are original and the piece is very rarely found in this size. Egypt, Ptolomaic Period, 350 - 50 B.C.
