A Bronze Horus

Hieratic Bound Document

It is in the falcon guise that he appears in The Art Museum, a handsome bronze figure presented by Carl Otto von Kienbusch ‘o6 The bird is shown without the crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt, which he sometimes wears; a necklace incised across the breast is the only addition to an otherwise naturalistic representation. The feathers are marked by incision, as are details around the eye, but the sleek and sensitive modelling in itself portrays the alert and powerful falcon.
