Relics of the Nile is pleased to present this Egyptian green faience amulet of a standing deity. The figure stands erect with the traditional pose featuring the hands at the side. The back is supported by a full dorsal pillar and features a completely intact suspension hole. The figure is worn, but is likely of the standing god Horus, in falcon form. The lower portion of the figure has been lost as well, however the amulet still measures a splendid 1" in height. Perhaps the highlight of this amulet is the brilliant thick blue faience used. The color on this amulet is simply stunning! Egypt, 26th Dynasty, 664 - 525 B.C.
