This is an absolutely amazing hand-sculpted pottery statue of the Ancient Egyptian God "Bes" procured through an auction in the U.K. The statue is unpainted and in exquisite antique condition, featuring all of the classic design elements of this Egyptian deity, and would make an excellent central piece of any ancient civilization art collection.

Bes was widely worshiped in ancient Egypt as the God of music, merriment, and childbirth. Bes was the protector of children, and depictions of him were frequently seen in the bedrooms of ancient Egyptian households.

This piece was made by local Egyptians for affluent visitors who traveled to Egypt on educational "Grand Tours" of various archaeologically significant sites between 1780-1920s; a time also known as the "Egyptian Revival Period."

This Egyptian ring is attested to as authentic and to have been made in Egypt during the “Grand Tour/Egyptian Revival” era by Mr Matthew Wicks of Ancient Hands, Ltd, and is accompanied by a digitally signed PDF copy of its "Provenance & Ownership" documentation.
