GODDESS Before THE PHARAOHS
If you've never seen this exquisite Goddess from all angles before, here She is in all Her glory: front, back and side.
This of course is the famous predynastic Egyptian bird goddess. She's 11.7" high.
Made of baked clay, She wears a white dress below the waist. Her body is red and Her long black hair falls onto her neck.
She's so carefully fashioned She even has tiny fingers and thumbs incised onto her tiny hands. Although She has a bird's beak, She has no other facial features.
Before the Pharoahs ever set foot on Egyptian soil, before war and slavery were invented, before the days when snooty snobbism hit the deck, this Goddess was loved and adored by the people of Egypt.
