SOLD

Late Dynastic Period c.600 B.C. A large and solid Ancient Egyptian red ware terracotta head of Sekhmet the Lion Headed Goddess of healing. Sekhmet is depicted wearing a full Nemes head cloth and would have once also had a large circular solar disc upon her head, now gone but with traces remaining. This head would have once formed part of a much larger flat backed votive statuette and may have once adorned a houshold shrine. Wear to her muzzle otherwise in good condition and clearly detailed. An unusual and appealing piece from an old Durham collection, 50mm wide x 57mm high x 23mm deep.
