Splendors of Ancient Egypt Queen Arsinoe II

$200.00

Ptolemaic Period, 300- 100 B.C.
I saw the original relief at the Exhibit in St. Petersburg,
International Art Museum of Florida.

The Queen in this relief mystified me ,This relief represents one of the great queens of the Ptolemaic Period, Arsinoe I I , who was a strong minded and influential ruler with her brother/husband Ptolemy I I. She wears a unique vulture headdress and is shown shaking a sistrum, or rattle, with a cow’s head of goddess Hathor.
This relief was probably made after her death when she had been made a goddess and was called ” daughter of the God Amun.”

I spent some time studying the original piece so I could reproduce this for myself.
I am fascinated with Egyptian Art and have made several copies most just for my own enjoyment. all that I have made were from seeing the originals.

I have been to the Louvre Museum many times .I tried to replicate the finish( limestone ) and the color of the original.

I would ship this piece mounted on a black velvet background, with a simple black frame . This piece looks great just mounted directly on a white wall also..

This piece you see in the photo is a copy which I molded from the original work, in a silicon rubber mold and it looks exact like the original. Even after the molding process I still must do the final patina to give it that original look.
12 X 13, framed 18 X 24 about 8 pounds
