Egyptian Bronze Seated Harpocrates / Horus

Ancient Egypt, Late Dynastic Period, Dynasties 26 through 30, ca. 662 to 330 BCE. A seated bronze figure of the child god Harpocrates, sitting nude, legs together with feet on an integral square base, arms at his side. He wears a uraeus, as well as side lock of youth. The child of Isis and Osiris, Harpocrates (the Hellenised term for Horus) was revered for his power over threatening animals and despite his youthful appearance, was seen as a protective deity. A lovely example with handsome features and nice glossy surfaces with attractive, deep green patination. Created to be dedicated rather than worn as a pendant.
