Timeless are pleased to offer this intricately carved late-period Egyptian Hapi Amulet, dating from 664 -332 B.C.E.

 

Hapi was a baboon-headed God of ancient Egypt who was tasked (by his father, Horus) with protecting the lungs of the deceased - hence the common depiction of a hamadryas baboon head sculpted as the lid of the canopic jar which held the lungs following an embalming.

 

This fascinating historical artifact depicts a standing Hapi holding a sceptre in front of him. 

 

With a superb provenance, this lovely little piece measures 45mm in length and is formed of a glazed composite matrix.

 

Now available in the Timeless Galleries.
