A Small, Fine Figurine of Osiris in Bronze. Egypt, Late Period, c. 664-332 BC. The bearded god in mummiform pose, tightly robed, holding a crook and flail, the atef crown upon his head. A tenon, for insertion into a mount, is underneath his feet. The figure well proportioned, with precise, sharp detailing. The god's implements and feathers to his crown were separate attachments, perhaps in a different material, and are now absent. Otherwise, god very well preserved, with dark brown, red, and slight olive patina. Height: 4-1/4", and mounted on wood base. A superior example of this miniature type.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
