Seller: Top-Rated Seller watsburg (3,911) 100%, Location: Keller, Texas, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 264573915424 Purchased from Ron Ratkevich of Tucson, Arizona, this rather large figure, measuring 15 3/4 inches tall and weighing over 9 pounds, was said to have been brought back from Egypt in the 1930's to 1940's. This is a Tomb Figure or Dummy Sarcophagus which was intended to replace a person whose body was never recovered so they could be laid to rest in an effigy form. This appears to be a female. I had obtained this with another I have listed. The other is of what appears to be a girl with a doll and it is possible this one and the girl were somehow related. The exact description on the tag reads "Ancient Egyptian Tomb Figure, made to replace person whose body was lost or destroyed (flood, fire, in battle). This fragment was found in the rubble of a collapsed tomb (one of many in a residential town expansion, legally exported as part of a museum collection downsize). A beautiful artifact ca. 4300 yearsold Old Kingdom, Dynasty 5, reign of Niuserre or later, cs. 2420 - 2389 B.C., Egypt, Memphite Region, Djoser Pyramid, South Precinct possibly, Saqqara." I believe this to be an old Museum reproduction for display. If real, this would bring in the high 5 figures. I'm starting the bidding at a price I feel fair for a reproduction which would make a great decorator, curiosity and conversation piece of art.
