Divine and Royal Figures from Egypt by Sidney Smith

A small but choice collection of antiquities, generously presented by Mr. Mitchell-Innes, was acquired by him from fellahin during a number of years in Egypt. The small, partially hollow, wooden figure of a kneeling Pharaoh (PI. IVa), hands on knees, wearing the ḫprš crown, is an example of miniature woodcarving not previously illustrated in the Egyptian collections, and is presumably to be dated somewhere between the XXIInd and XXVIth Dynasties. The Isis, about to suckle Horus (PI. IV b), is of composition, glazed green over all the surface save for the wig, which is coloured a purplish blue, a combination thought to point to the XXXth (Persian) Dynasty; the left arm is slightly broken.
