An Egyptian Faience Open-work Sekhmet http://www.antiques.com/classified/2038/Antique-An-Egyptian-Faience-Open-Work-Sekhmet From ancient egypt, third intermediate period, ca. 950-700 bc. Lion-headed goddess sekhmet seated on an open-work throne, the sides of which are decorated with figures of the snake god, nehebka. The goddess carries a sistrum. Bright blue with added details in black. 6 cm. Sekhmet was the lioness-headed goddess of war and destruction. She was the sister and wife of ptah. She was created by the fire of re's eye. Re created her as a weapon of vengeance to destroy men for their wicked ways and disobedience to him (see the story of re). Having once unleashed her powers for the destruction of mankind, the egyptians feared a repeat performance by sekhmet. The egyptian people developed an elaborate ritual in hopes she could be appeased. This ritual revolved around more than 700 statues of the goddess (such as the one to the left). The ancient egyptian priests were required to perform a ritual before a different one of these statues each morning and each afternoon of every single day of every single year. Only by the strictest adherence to this never-ending ritual could the ancient egyptians be assured of their ability to placate sekhmet. She is generally portrayed as a woman with the head of a lioness surmounted by the solar disk and the uraeus. The name "sekhmet" comes from the root sekhem which means "to be strong, mighty, violent". She was identified with the goddess bastet, and they were called the goddesses of the west (sekhmet) and the east (bastet). Both were shown with the heads of lionesses although bastet was said to wear green, while sekhmet wore red.

An Egyptian Large Gilt Ptah-sokar-osiris http://www.antiques.com/classified/2042/Antique-An-Egyptian-Large-Gilt-Ptah-Sokar-Osiris Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. Finely-detailed and large ptah sokar osiris; nice glyphs on front and back, gilded face with almond eyes and a slight smile. A rare style in that it is in two halves, put together like a small mummy coffin with pegs. Traces of linen still remaining inside. Just over 25"h (64 cm)! The mummiform appearance and the crown of ostrich feathers, rams, and solar disk are fixed attributes of this syncretistic deity. The heavy tripartite wig and long curved beard are both emblems of divinity. Most noteworthy in the respect is the figurines finish with gold leaf over a coating of white gesso. Gold is not just precious material, it is a divine substance: according to the ancient egyptians, the flesh of the gods was made of gold, and their bones of silver. Because gold does not corrode, it became a symbol of eternity and immortality. Its association with the sun and its revivifying rays also contributed to this symbolism. Thus, gold is most fitting material for figurines of divinities, particularly for such patrons of resurrection as ptah-sokar-osiris

Original Howard Carter Painting King Tutankhamun Egypt http://www.antiques.com/classified/2046/ORIGINAL-HOWARD-CARTER-PAINTING-King-Tutankhamun-Egypt Howard carter discovered and excavated the tomb of egyptian pharaoh king tutankhamen. Carter got his start as an artist, tracing egyptian hieroglyphics for others, before becoming an archaeologist himself. His search for the tomb of king tut took nearly a decade, including a lengthy interruption during world war i, and was supported financially by george herbert, the earl of carnarvon. Carter discovered the tomb of tut on 4 november 1922 and opened the tomb after lord carnarvon's arrival at the site on the 26th of november. Ironically, tutankhamen had been practically unknown before the discovery, but news coverage of carter's amazing find made "king tut" a household name. Lord carnarvon died of pneumonia in 1923, reinforcing the legend of a curse placed on those who had disturbed tut's tomb. However, carter himself lived to the age of 64 before dying a natural death in england.
