Egyptian Pyramid. Pyramidion. Thoth. Rising Sun God. Replica. Osiris. Details of an Original Fragment. Egypt / Australia
This piece is a solid relief made from a mix of limestone and quartzite and then hand painted replicating tones (aged black patina) of the original piece…including the eroded portion near the base on one side.
This is a fine replica of a pyramidion which is the decorative capstone of a monumental pyramid. Featuring the tomb owner and his wife offering prayers to the god Osiris.
The baboons represent the presence of Thoth, one of the moon gods (well known as the god of writing and keeper of records). Also seen is the boat of Ra – the sun god – that has passed through the 12 gates ( in hours) to be greeted by the howling baboons at the dawn of a new day.
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. This is a great paperweight or relic suitable for the most “ancient” places and niches in your home or office.
It is not JUST a piece of stone but an authentic reproduction of an original. Stand not available.
