Object Description

A rare Egyptian cast bronze pendant of the god Harpocrates, the personification of Horus the Child, identifiable from his side-lock, which was a common hairstyle for young Egyptian boys, and the gesture of holding his index finger to his chin. The deity is depicted standing over a small plinth, with one arm along his side and knees slightly bent. The reverse features a loop for suspension. The pendant would have been worn as an amulet, bestowing its protective powers upon the wearer.
