Heads of Hathor


Description Provenance Credit
Description The piece is carved with two superimposed heads of Hathor, goddess of mirth and joy. It is pierced with a hole at the top for attachment and is broken at the bottom, which suggests that it was an inlay in a handle or a cult object of the goddess.
Provenance Grand Duke Nicolas Michaelovitch, St. Petersburg, until 1919; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date of acquisition unknown], by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
