Canaanite Scarab Seatite w' Classic Coiled Cord Pattern
Canaanite Scarab Seatute w' Classic Coiled Cord Pattern 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 with the classic coiled cord pattern, discussed in detail in the book "The Scarab, A reflection of Ancient Egypt" The Israel Museum, Jerusalem (see page 31). 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 completely intact and absolutely superb! Much rarer than its Egyptian counterpart, this fabulous Canaanite scarab is a fine example. Size: 17mm x 13mm
