Figure Ensemble of the Goddess Neith with Horus the Child (twice) and a Worshiper


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description During the 1st millennium BCE, individuals could receive permission to donate not only single figures of a specific deity to a temple but also more complex group arrangements of one or several gods with the donor himself as a worshiper or bringer of offerings. This ensemble exhibits the goddess Neith seated on a throne, accompanied by two figures of the juvenile Horus (one with double-crown here for Upper Egypt, and one with the lower Egyptian crown). The donor is depicted as the kneeling worshipper in front of the feet of the goddess.
