Late Period, circa 664 to 525 BC. 

 A pale green glazed amulet depicting Shu, the son of the creator and sun god in the Heliopolitan creation myth, represents the principle of air.  Shu was responsible for separating Geb and Nut and securing the space of the universe; therefore he also represented the life principle. Amulets of Shu became popular in the Late Period. This amulet represents Shu in his standardized form. He is kneeling on his right knee with his left knee drawn up. Both arms are raised (to lift up the sky), and he wears a long wig and a pleated shendyt.  Loop hole behind for suspension Two repaired breaks at the center.
Size:    1-3/8 inches H. + wood block base. 
Provenance:    Private Brooklyn collection. Purchased from Harmer Rooke NYC. 1980’s.
