Item #: ESH2 -- An Egyptian Carved Limestone Effigy Head -- $60.00
An effigy head of a female figure collected in Egypt in the 1950's, carved from limestone. Attractive work, with a hole at the bottom from having been mounted on a stand. Probably a 19th century Grand Tour period artifact, i.e. not ancient. The face stained in a reddish hue, with traces of black stain remaining in the hair. With a repaired crack. An interesting artifact that displays well.
