Egyptian Offering Bowl with Human Feet Small Figurine 3.25WPN# EG10
Egyptian Bowl with Feet (3750 - 3000 BC). During the pre-dynastic period, Egyptian potters relished creating all manner of intriguingly shaped platters, bowls and pitchers. Many of these ceramic items were based on animals. Here we have a small offering bowl with human shaped feet.
This unique bowl which dates back to the transition from the first to the second Naqada period seems to been inspired by the hieroglyph for 'bringing'. It leans forward as if offering its contents. It was probably used as an offering bowl at a sanctuary or in a tomb.
- The replica reproduces some damage or chips on the feet as existing on the ancient original.
- Measures 2 1/4 in H x 3 1/4 in W x 3 1/4 in D. Weighs 7 oz.
- Part of the highly collection Parastone Museum Mouseion 3D Collection.
