Egyptian Bronze Amulet of Uraei Serpents Double Uraeus Ex Gustave Jéquier
Two uraei, in frontal view and joined together at the height of their bodies and at the solar disk. Statuette amulet showing nice details of the serpents'. On the front we find six alveoli, and solar disks which were meant to be filled with faience or glass paste, some of which is still present. Has what appears to be a suspension loop on the back. Dates to the Late period and measures 1.5" inches in height. Great condition!
