Details

This ancient Egyptian plaque depicts the god Horus. The falcon-headed god, holds in his right hand the ankh, a symbol of life. The kings of Egypt associated themselves with Horus, who was the son of Isis and Osiris. Horus is an ancient god of Egyptian mythology, whose cult survived so long that he evolved dramatically over time and gained many names. Horus was so important that the Eye of Horus became an important Egyptian symbol of power. Originally, Horus was the god of the sky, and the son of Ra, the creator (whose own birth was thought due to the Ogdoad).

Specification

Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
