Ibis on a wooden base

Late Period–Ptolemaic Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 134

This ibis has a fine head, and stands on an ancient wooden base also appears unusual. Two mortises on the underside indicate the base was reused anciently, probably from a striding god to judge from the placement of the mortises.
