  • Description

    Found in Egypt in 1893.

    Halvor Bagge was a Scandinavian artist who worked with Arthur Evans at Knossos. Bagge restored the faience snake goddess from the Temple Repositories at Knossos. Like the Gillierons Bagge made a number of reproductions of Minoan and Mycenanean antiquities that he offered for sale. He was also a collector of Medieval and Byzantine art.

    The greenish tinge of this reproduction reflects the color of the original.

    The original is in the Borely Museum in Marseilles.
