Hellenistic Sculpture of a Bearded Man - PF.0231
Price: $1200.00
This delightful votive resembles both the benevolent Egyptian dwarf god Bes and the Classical fertility deity Priapus. Its function is not erotic, but is designed to bring luck and protection to the person who gave it as a gift to the gods. The connection between fertility figures and worldly happiness is as old as civilization itself, and this is a particularly fine example that blends centuries of diverse tradition. - (PF.0231)
