Canaanite White Steatite Scarab Seal 2000 - 1800 BC
The scarab is of typical Canaanite style, a simplified beetle with two horizontal incisions representing the legs, pierced lengthwise for suspension. The base of the scarab is an intricately carved scene…depicting a lion prowling with two other devices. A rarity of the very best artistic style, absolutely stunning in its simplicity, and deftly executed. A masterwork of ancient miniture sculptural art. The scarab is intact and absolutely superb! Much rarer than its Egyptian counterpart, this fabulous Canaanite scarab is a fine example. Size: 18mm x 14mm
