This detailed Egyptian bronze figurine is a nude striding Harpokrates, and dates to the Late Period, 26th-30th Dynasty, circa 664-342 B.C. This appealing piece is approximately 6 inches high, and is mounted on a custom display base that is approximately 2.2 inches high. This figure has it's weight on the straight right leg, and the left leg is seen striding forward. The missing left arm is positioned at his side, while the left arm is positioned for the hand to touch it's mouth with the index finger. This figure is also seen wearing the Egyptian double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt, and a ring that is suspended from both shoulders. There is also a detailed tie from the crown seen draped down to the middle of the back, and a detailed hair-lock seen flowing down from the right side of the crown. The face of this god has fine details, and has very realistic features that convey a serene expression. The god Harpokrates was the son of Osiris and Isis, and he is depicted here as the youthful heir to the throne, as he is seen nude wearing the double crown of Egypt. This nice piece has a great deal of eye appeal with a beautiful dark green patina with light green highlights. This intact piece is near complete, save for the missing feet, right hand, and the lower left arm. This piece is also mounted on a custom display base. Ex: Private German collection, circa 1940's. (Note: Additional documentation is available for the purchaser, including EU Export and US Customs Import documentation.) I certify that this piece is authentic as to date, culture, and condition:
