Egyptian statue / Artifact replica of the 18th dynasty scribe Nebmertuf 18th Dynasty Scribe Statue


Height (including base) - 13 cm x 7 cm square base
Inches - 5 x 2.5 square base Made of a limestone and quartzite composition stone, this particular statue has a well developed ancientgreen / black colourationthat gives this nicely proportioned scribe statue a look of antiquity. * Combined postage welcome. Background information - The scribe statue form became popular during Egypt's old kingdom as scribes became relatively well paid members of Egyptian society & could afford to commision a statue of themselves so they could be immortalized. This tradition continued for the majority of Egypts' great expanse of history.
The scribe kept accounts of a numerical nature and documents of events, disputes and even poetry. This actual piece is a copy of an original statue now located in the Louvre museum and it depicts the scribe Nebmertuf. This piece is merely one removable part of a larger statue group that features Nebmertuf in this seated position below a figure of Thoth, in the form of the baboon. Thoth was the patron god of writing, knowledge and thus was the god of choice for scribes such as Nebmertuf. This component of the statue group is the only part that has been made available for study as a replica. Nebmertuf's legs are crossed and an unrolled papyrus is revealed in his lap. He wears a fine braided wig that was very fashionable during the 18th Dynasty and the individual locks radiate from a circular crown of hair.
