Harpokrates (Horus the Child)


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Horus the Child was the son of Osiris and Isis; he was the embodiment of divine kingship. After the death of his father, Horus had to fight to protect the throne. With the divine support of his mother, Isis, he was victorious. Horus is depicted here as a child: nude, with a side lock, and a finger to his mouth, wearing the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt. The statuette was donated by "Hor-dj-es, son of Udja-hor."
