Wood Antiquities
Egyptian, 26th - 30th Dynasty, Wood Boat with Four Oarsmen and Fish Basket, 664 - 342 B.C.

|Egyptian| |Antiquities|, |Egyptian,| |26th| |-| |30th| |Dynasty,| |Wood| |Boat| |with| |Four| |Oarsmen| |and| |Fish| |Basket,| |664| |-| |342| |B.C.|
It was considered important to have at least one boat model in the tomb, often several, and the wealthiest were supplied with fleets. A fishing boat such as this would offer the owner a source of food and the ability to travel in the afterlife, most importantly the dead man would be able to make his pilgrimage to Abydos.
AEA31086. Egyptian funerary boat, 34.5 cm (13.5") long, 17 cm (6/3/4") high, suitable for the finest collection, near Choice, missing bow tip, stern attachment and possibly a sail, one figure missing arms, figures are not attached and arms loosely attached with wood glue (originally pegged and moveable); SOLD


Egyptian, Wooden Head Rest, 18th Dynasty, 1550 - 1292 B.C.

|Egyptian| |Antiquities|, |Egyptian,| |Wooden| |Head| |Rest,| |18th| |Dynasty,| |1550| |-| |1292| |B.C.|
Although this design may appear uncomfortable to us, the ancient Egyptians must have approved because the type was used for thousands of years from the First Dynasty (c. 3100 - 2890 B.C) through the Ptolemaic Period. It cupped the side of the face while one slept on their side. These headrests were taken to the tomb for use in the Other Life; mummies often lay within the coffin with the head resting on one.
AEA30970. Egyptian wooden head rest, cf. Petrie, Objects of Daily Use, p. 35, 33, Choice, 20.7 cm (8 1/8"), complete without repairs, cracks as expected for ancient wood objects of this size, made in three parts; SOLD


Egyptian Wood Sokar Hawk, Ptolemaic Period, c. 332 - 30 B.C.

|Egyptian| |Antiquities|, |Egyptian| |Wood| |Sokar| |Hawk,| |Ptolemaic| |Period,| |c.| |332| |-| |30| |B.C.|
Sokar was the Memphite god of the dead and patron of the workers who built the necropolis and tomb and ritual objects, and substances used in mummification. During the Late Period, the combined deity Ptah-Sokar-Osiris, was often represented as a wooden mummiform figure with the regalia of kingship, standing on a miniature sarcophagus, facing a small Sokar hawk at his feet. See Ptah-Sokar-Osiris in NumisWiki for a photograph of a complete piece.
AEA30964. Wood sokar hawk; 16 cm (6 1/4") long, 5.7 cm (1 3/4") tall, original gilding and red, black, and blue gesso pigment with some touch-up restoration; hole in the top of the head originally held a crown, now missing; SOLD
