This piece will stand up on its own with a hard, level surface. It has been reviewed at the Forensic Lab we use in Santa Fe and clearly determined to be of ancient origin...but I didn't pay the money to have the complete paper documentation. Marble has not been 100% confirmed identity, but I am suspect it might be Carrera from Italy because of the heavy Ag inclusion on the bottom rear. This appears to be a carving of a priest of Osiris holding the Ankh and a Cobra. This piece has provenance from the Marion County Illinois Tomb going back to the collection of Thelma McClain being added to her artifact assortment in 1983. This piece has been featured in two recent video presentations as well as one recent publication.
This piece is delivered for $1650.00 shipped in double boxes and insured. HH
Whoever pays that kind of money for this object deserves to own it.
