Egyptian Museum Quality Replica Anubis Relief Carving. Saite Period. Egypt / Australia
This piece is a solid relief made from a mix of limestone and quartzite with deep and earthly ochre tones. It is hand painted and features the jackal god of mummification – Anubis. He is holding an Ankh amulet. Ankh was the symbol of life itself. This relief is representative of many renaissance periods of Egyptian history – specifically the Saite Period of the 26th Dynasty, 685-525 BC.
The creator/sculptor of this piece is from Australia. His specialty is works-of-art from the ancient past . . . primarily Egypt. He has and does have art commissions from all over the world. Very talented. Check out his other pieces on my site.
Cracks are common and not considered a defect. Great piece!
