Love Hieroglyphics. A have a large cartouche of my own that was made in Egypt. I designed it & drew the size I wanted. I had a small one with my name on it, but I wanted something unusal & different. They did such beautiful work. My husbands friend owned a jewerly shop in Alexandria. I hope to go someday. V.

Otter, Late Period or Ptolemaic Period, 664–30 B.C. Bronze or copper alloy - During the Late Period and Ptolemaic times otters were represented in bronzes statuettes such as this one, standing, forepaws raised, atop small bronze boxes. The pose of raised paws signifies the otter's adoration of the sun god when he rises in the morning. In myth otters were attached to the goddess of Lower Egypt Wadjet, whose cult was centered in Buto, in the northern Delta.
