A BRONZE FIGURE OF HORUS IN ITS

ORIGINAL MOLD

During the last few months the majority of the small amulets, scarab-seals, glass inlays and some articles of personal adornment belonging to the Abbott, the Edwin Smith, and the Anderson Collections have been catalogued. The glass inlays are especially rare pieces; most of them were cast in open molds, being composed of both translucent and opaque glass, of various shades of blue, violet, green, red and yellow. Many pieces are multi-colored and it is interesting to study the difficult technical process of combining the colors. A few pieces are of cut glass and one, a little seated figure, has a collar separately made of mosaic glass with a pattern of daisies of marvellously delicate design. Each flower is only about one and one-half millimeters in diameter, yet consists of a yellow center and sixteen white petals separated by fine threads of black glass. All this material has still to pass through the hands of the repairer, Mr. Hoffmann, and to be photographed for publication, but it can probably be made available to the public within the present year.

The Society may be interested in a preliminary description of an object soon to be placed on exhibition which is apparently unique. This is an ancient mold still containing the bronze figure cast in it. Its appearance, as it came down from Dr. Abbott's day, is shown in Figs. I and 2 and it was thus described in the Abbott catalogue: “927. Figure of Horus, curiously made of bronze and gypsum, in a stooping position, as if from age. From Sakkarah.” The figure does represent Horus. Enough of it can be seen even in Fig. I to suggest that it is of the type, very popular in the last few centuries before Christ, in which the god is represented as a little nude child, seated—the form of Horus called Harpocrates. Around his neck in this figure is suspended an amulet such as Egyptian babies wore for their protection. The side-lock characteristic of children and given to this child-god is of especially luxuriant growth. The arms are held close to the body; the legs are
