#7483: EGYPTIAN TOMB Ushabti - 664 to 525 BC,
XXVI Dynasty 
Hieroglyphs down front and around back 

Much LARGER than most Ushabtis available !!!

BETTER THAN MOST MUSEUMS' QUALITY !!

Historical Context:  This item is an Egyptian USHABTI. These are some of the most interesting and collectable artifacts from ancient Egypt. Ushabtis are magical statues found in tombs. Egyptians believed these Ushabtis would come to life and serve the dead in their after life and do any unpleasant chore the deceased might be called upon to perform in the afterlife. Because the daily life of ancient Egyptians centered on agriculture, these Ushabtis took on the appearance of field workers. They were mummiform, so as to be identified with Osiris, the god of the dead, but their hands were protruding from the bandages so they could do the work. 

The ushabtis were made in two-piece pottery molds with the inscription being incised with tool prior to firing. These figures are inscribed with various versions of Chapter 6 of the Book of the Dead.

Hieroglyphs Translation:  "He who is enlightened, Osiris, this writing ..to see the true light....O' Ushabti ...worship Ushabti figurines...tend the fields....to flood the river banks....and transport the sand from the east to the west and vice versa....behold, I am here when you call."

#11349: EGYPTIAN Bronze Horus with Side Lock of Youth
New Kingdom, 1600 to 30 BC

TOP Quality, Unusual and RARE !!!

Historical Context:  Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion, who was worshipped from at least the late Predynastic period through to Greco-Roman times. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history, and these are treated as distinct gods by Egypt specialists. These various forms may possibly be different perceptions of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality. He was most often depicted as a falcon, man with a falcon head, or a youth, usually nursing on Isis.

  #11724: EYE OF HORUS Amulet - 850 to 550 BC

Great Color !!!

Historical Context:  Designed to resemble the eye of a falcon, this symbol is called the Eye of Ra or Eye of Horus represents the right eye of the Egyptian Falcon God Horus. According to legend, the left eye was torn from Horus by his murderous brother Seth, and magically restored by Thoth, the God of magic. After the restoration, some stories state, Horus made a gift of the eye to Osiris, which allowed this solar deity to rule the underworld. The Eye of Horus represented both the Sun and the Moon and and portions of the Eye of Horus was used in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs to represent fractions of number (i.e., 1/4, 1/2, etc.) 

This Eye of Horus Amulet was worn in ancient Egypt as a symbol of good luck and good health.  This Eye of Horus has a hole through the top edge and can be strung on string as a necklace (how it was worn in ancient times).

#10011: TAWERET Amulet - 664 to 525 BC,
XXVI Dynasty 

Egyptian Goddess of childbirth and fertility and protector of the Household - Worn for protection against evil

Rare this nice !!!!  Wearable !!!  

Historical Context:  Taweret was the Egyptian Goddess of childbirth and fertility. The name "Taweret" means, "she who is great"or simply, "great one". When paired with another deity, she became the demon-wife of Apep, the original god of evil.  In their art, Taweret was depicted as a composite of all the things the Egyptians feared, the major part of her being hippopotamus, since this is what the constellation most resembled, with the arms and legs of a lioness, and with the back of a crocodile. On occasion, later, rather than having a crocodile back, she was seen as having a separate, small crocodile resting on her back, which was thus interpreted as Sober, the crocodile-god, and said to be her consort.  As the hippopotamus was associated with the Nile, these more positive ideas of Taweret allowed her to be seen as a goddess of the annual flooding of the Nile and the bountiful harvest that it brought. Ultimately, although only a household deity, since she was still considered the consort of Apep, Taweret was seen as one who protected against evil by restraining it.

#10216: Egyptian Pottery Fragment - 2nd to 1st Century BC,

Hippocrates of Kos with Side Lock of Youth !!

Historical Context:  This pottery fragment is from pottery produced by the PTOLEMAIC EGYPTIAN EMPIRE around the 2nd to 1st Century BC. The Ptolemaic empire was founded by Ptolemy I after the death of Alexander the Great. Ptolemy I was a boyhood friend of Alexander and his most trusted general. After Ptolemy successfully completed the Persian war, Alexander granted him the area of Egypt. He founded an empire that lasted almost 300 years. The empire ended with Cleopatra VII, the Queen of the Nile   

Hippokrátēs was an ancient Greek physician of the Age of Pericles (Classical Athens), and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the Western father of medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of medicine. This intellectual school revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields that it had traditionally been associated with (notably theurgy and philosophy), thus making medicine a profession

ANCIENT BABYLONIA

#10653: Cuneiform Tablet
2,150 to 2,000 BC (Ur III Period)

Administrative Record:  Grain Inventory

Historical Context:  This cuneiform tablet was manufactured about 2000 to 1300 BC in Ancient Babylonia, region east of current day Lebanon. In the late fourth and third milleniums B.C. a people called the Sumerians began to develop a writing system called "cuneiform" ("wedge-shaped"), written on wet clay with a sharpened stick, or stylus. At first the Sumerians used a series of pictures ("pictograms") to record information having to do with business and administration, but went on to develop a system of symbols that stood for ideas and later sounds (usually syllables). In the later stages of Sumerian writing there were about 600 signs that were used on a regular basis.

The language that the Sumerians used is not related to any other language we know about, and it gradually ceased to be a spoken language. The writing system, however, was adopted by people speaking a Semitic language called Akkadian, and continued to be used by a number of peoples up until the 1st century BC. Both the Babylonians and Assyrians, who spoke dialects of Akkadian, used the cuneiform signs, writing not only in their own languages, but sometimes in Sumerian as well. Sumerian had become the language of literature and scholarship, somewhat like Latin up until fairly recently.  Most cuneiform tablets are business related documents.

Special Features of this Short Sword

Duck-eyed on curves of hilt at attachment to blade (See close-up picture)

Molded grip with Four Men Arm-to-Arm (See close-up picture)

 

Historical Context: 

Luristan literally means “Land of the Lurs”, and was situated in a wide sweep of the Zagros mountains in what is now western Iran. The sociopolitics of this area are complex, with repeated waves and invasions of Medes, Cimmerians and Persians, amongst others. There are many styles, but the best-known pieces of bronze from this area are anthropomorphic and zoomorphic pieces reflecting religious and secular tastes, as well as weaponry and utilitarian items that were buried with the deceased in tombs across the Zagros area. 

Cultures of Mesopotamia were diverse and variegated. Even in the period of great empires, beginning with the Akkadians, Mesopotamia consisted of largely independent city-states with their own cults (often completely different religions), languages, kings, and administrations. The earliest culture is the Sumerians (circa 3000 to 1800 BC), but other cultures developed, including the Akkadians (2450 to 1800 BC), the Amorites (1800 to 1530 BC), the Hittites (1600 to 717 BC), and the Assyrians (1170 to 612 BC).

ANCIENT ASSYRIA

#7394: Ishtar - Assyrian Mother Goddess Cult Statue

2nd Millennium BC

Historical Context: 
Ishtar was the Babylonian and Assyrian mother goddess who presided over love, war and fertility. She was called Ashtoreth and Atsarte by the Phoenicians, and she was also identified with the Sumerian goddess Inanna.  Ishtar was associated with the Assyrians story of the Great Flood, essentially the same as the Bible Story of Noah.

Ishtar's names - like those of all ancient deities - were many and various. In Babylon, her name meant 'Star', the Light of the World. Semitic people gradually conquered the lands of Sumer, introducing changes to the earliest myths and adding further names for the goddess. She was known as Ashtoreth, to whom King Solomon returns at the end of his days; she was also named -Har, or Hora - from which the words harlot and whore sprang. Inanna/Ishtar was served by powerful prostitute-priestesses who were 'the vehicles of her creative life in their sexual union with the men who came there to perform a sacred ritual'.  This goddess exhibited a rich diversity of powers, for she also had a terrifying aspect as goddess of war and storms. Her primordial origins are suggested by images depicting her with the magical Tree of Life, the sacred serpent, and numerous birds - linking her with the earliest snake-bird goddesses known to us in many cultures.
