These are older pieces that have been sitting in my studio for a while now. I have been hanging on to these either because I was emotionally attached to them or because they are leftovers from previous shows that I had. Anyhow, it is time that they find a good home to go to.
Since these are pieces that I no longer create, I have priced them at a low cost, therefore, there will be no exchanges, refunds or returns. Please be aware of this**
Please ask me any questions before buying. I am happy to answer all.
This piece is an Egyptian Heart. It has the anatomy of a human heart and the iconography of the Egyptian Eye of Horus as well as the feather of the soul. Ancient Egyptians believed that the seat of the deceased's soul, his heart, was weighed on a balance against the feather. If the heart was free from the impurities of sin, and therefore lighter than the feather, then the dead person could enter the eternal afterlife.
Egyptian Heart is made out of low fire clay with glossy and matte glazes. It measures 7.5"h x 5.5"w x 3d (19cm x 14cm x 6.5cm) aprox.
This piece would look great in your studio or sitting on a shelf by itself.
