Figure of Isis-Aphrodite



Figurine of Isis-Aphrodite Anasyr(o)mene (“Lifting-the-skirt”) or perhaps Isis-Bubastis, standing and lifting the front of her short-sleeved tunic to reveal her pubic area with the back of the tunic falling in folds beside her legs, She is wearing an elaborate tall headdress with her hair parted in the middle with Isis-locks falling onto her shoulders. The back rough and plain with a circular vent hole. Mould made from clay. This is from the1886 Egypt Exploration Fund excavations at Naukratis; but it has been incorrectly labelled as being from Tanis. CONDITION NOTE 1998: Incomplete, surface cracked, worn, chipped, discoloured, surface dirt, label adhered to surface.
