ANCIENT Egypt CLAY Ra SUN GOD B.C. belt
This is a rare primitive clay Egyptian god that has two holes in it which makes me think it was for a belt. He is Ra the God of the Sun and he was very important. He was the lord of all the gods. He was usually shown in human form with a falcon head, crowned with the sun disc encircled by the a sacred cobra. Ra sailed across the heavens in a boat called the 'Barque of Millions of Years'. At the end of each day Ra was thought to die and sailed on his night voyage through the Underworld, leaving the Moon to light the world above. The sun disk on Ra's head ( missing on this one) often has a cobra round it. A cobra appears on the forehead of Pharaohs, like Tutankhamun. This one measures 3 ¼ long and has a lot of detail ( when you click on the photos it will enlarge them) and you can see all the fine lines that are on him. He dates B.C. Sold as found..
