Cartonnage Fragment
Egypt, circa 675BCE. Good. 25th dynasty painted linen (5" X 10 1/2"), the central portion from the coffin of a mummy, depicting standing figures of Sekhmet (protector of the Pharaoh), Osiris (God of the underworld), and Anubis (guide to the underworld). Fragile, but in 1 piece, authentic, and good, exemplary for fabric of this vintage. Framed to 11" X 17". Egypt has a long, proud history but it's hard to take any civilization seriously that worshiped a jackal.
