SHARE PAGE INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

Light blue faience shabti for the Governor of Upper Egypt, Ankh-Hor, wearing a false beard, tripartite wig and a seed bag over his left shoulder, the front and entire back covered with hieroglyphs from Chapter VI of the Book of the Dead, the nine lower back rows of hieroglyphs divided at the center with double vertical lines.

Ankh-hor was Chief Steward of the Divine Votress Nitocris I (daughter of Psammetichus I), Great Mayor of Memphis, Overseer of Upper Egypt in Thebes and Overseer of the Priests of Amun during the reigns of Psamtek II and Apries. His tomb (TT414) is the fourth largest in the Theban necropolis at Asasif and one of a series built at the end of the Third Intermediate Period for high officials in the estates of the God's Wives of Amun. As Chief Steward of Nitocris, he would have been one of the most important and wealthiest men in Egypt.


Height: 4" (10.5cm)
Provenance:

Formerly in the collection of Rodney Davidson (1933-2016), Melbourne, Australia. From the late 1940s, Mr. Davidson developed an interest in books that documented Australia’s early history, during his travels to the middle east and abroad his interest extended beyond books and into artifacts. In recognition of his public service to the heritage of the Nation he was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1974 and in 1989 was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO). To many, Rodney was an inspiration as a collector, connoisseur, and protector of history.

Condition:
Front of foot rejoined from original piece, otherwise intact. A fine example for the type.

Flexible Payment Plan


*This feature will soon be integrated at checkout 

At Medusa-art.com, we believe that anyone who desires to acquire antiquities should be able to do so. We are passionate about this belief and offer interest-free installments of up to 10 months on particular items (based on item value). Items eligible for payment plan are indicated by clicking on the Payment Plan link found on each item page.

HOW IT WORKS

    Payment plans are available on orders starting at $900.
    A deposit of $300 or 10%, which ever is greater, of the total price is required upon purchase.
    The balance must be paid in installments of at least $300 or 10% per months, whichever is greater.
    Select your monthly payment term from the dropdown menu at checkout.
    Title remains the property of Medusa Ancient Art, Inc. until payment is made in full.
    Your order will ship once payment is made in full. 


NOTE: Some items do not qualify for payment plans. All payment plan orders must be paid within 10 months from the order date. Exceeding this tiem frame will result in forfeiture. To get your order faster, you can pay-off your order in full or increase your monthly payments at any time.

REFUNDS & EXCHANGES on PAYMENT PLANS

You may cancel your payment plan purchase within three (3) months, a 15% restocking-fee will apply. We do not offer refunds or exchanges on items purchased on the payment plan. However, we provide our lifetime money-back guarantee of authenticity.
