Bronze of Seated Osiris. Egypt, Late Third Intermediate to Late Period, c. 800-450 BC. The bearded god seated in usual form fitting robe, crossed hands holding flail and crook, wearing tall atef-crown. His plumpish features modeled with care and dignity; his empty eyes once inlaid. Very well preserved -- the metal sound and stable, with only minor loss to the disc at the top of the crown. Handsome patina in dark brown, with touches of green. Height: 6-3/8"; on walnut base. A very attractive example of this less common form of Osiris. A desirable little work of art.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Realized $2,760
