Item:232887725094RARE ANCIENT ANCIENT EGYPTIAN Statue Stone New Kingdom Baboon 300 Bc About This Item : In ancient Egypt, baboons and monkeys often play a significant and mysterious role in religion and elsewhere. This somehow seems strange, as there are certainly no native monkeys or baboons to Egypt, nor have there been for some time stretching back to antiquity. However, it is clear that prehistoric Egyptians of the fourth millennium BC were familiar with monkeys, including the imposing and dangerous baboons and the African long-tailed monkey. Since that time, they have held a permanent place in ancient Egyptian religion as one of the more important animal forms into which the gods might be transformed. Also the very word "baboon" may be derived from ancient Egypt, perhaps from a linguistic root that characterized its sexual activities.Origin: EgyptPayment: We Only Accept Paypal Condition: look at the picturesCondition:“As Shown In Pictures”, Provenance:Luxor, Material:Stone
