Old and New Beauties!
My favorite photographers are so generous. Although I can't get to Egypt, they share their photos so I can visit through their camera eyes.
I have so many new pieces to add to my gatherings. I'm a bit frustrated by my organization of the "Set Find" pages. I can't find anything, and I have some idea of what I've placed there. I know it must be even worse for anyone else. My apologies, dear readers! (But there will be new additions there when I have a chance to organize these better.)
Meanwhile, a lovely "Hathor Find". I love the way the artist depicted Hathor. I love the way the artist did the subject's toes. I was able to read the accession number on Heidi Kontkanon's photo, and thus was able to learn more:
I was able to find three sources for this piece. One is in Italian, but with photos. One is is English, and by comparing two online sources, I've managed what may be the complete reference. And one is in French, but I could manage it okay.
From Pernigotti's article, I was able to get the subject's name and one photo showing an interesting perspective from above. I hope it is "fair use" to share the following:
I found many more photos at the Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale's website.
I took one of those as the main guide for this tracing, but needed to refer to all of the photos to discern the close details:
Also, these authors give a more precise dating but disagree with Pernigotti:
Josephson and Eldamaty also give clear copies of all the hieroglyphs, but I wasn't able to find direct translations. They may be tucked in a part of the book not accessible to online peeksies.
I can only make out with my dabbling knowledge, the standard "An offering that the king gives"...something... "Lord Amun-Ra"...something..."Two lands"..."All the Gods of?"..."Waset"
I won't be sending for that book anytime soon, as I need to curb my expenses. I've had way too much fun at Shapeways! But the magnificent Herus have arrived:
