Vintage Egyptian Bookends, Amun / Amon Ra Metropolitan Museum of Art reproduction
Vintage 1991 MMA Metropolitan Museum of Art Egyptian bookends. These ram heads represent the Egyptian God Amun (also known as Amon Ra) the god of sun and air. This is his anthropomorphic form that is part animal and part human.
The bookends are a heavy, cast polymer resin, patinaed by hand to reproducs the wear of the original.
Condition note: What look like chips or cracks in this piece are not defects and are actually part of the design. They're reproductions and meant to look like the weather worn sculpture from the collection in the Metropolitan Museum. The idea is that these recall the look of ancient artifacts.
Dimensions: 6" high by approximately 3 1/8" wide by 4" deep
Bookends come with the original information paper from the museum. Please note the paper has some wear and marks from age.
