Bronze Sculpture of Isis and the Child, Horus. Egypt, Late Period, c. 550-350 BC. Stylish rendering of the goddess, Isis, and Horus.

Horus nude, with lithe athletic body, and large side lock of hair. Condition: as found -- with Isis missing feet and headdress. Bronze with pleasant heavy green patina. Height: 3-3/4", on neat custom base in black acrylic.
