egyptian ducks

Ancient Egyptian vase in the shape of a duck, made from polychrome faience.  Artist unknown; 3rd cent. BCE (Ptolemaic period).  Thought to come from Alexandria; now in the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore.  Photo credit: Walters Art Museum.

Egyptian Goose (gosling) ~ Nilgans (Dunenküken) ~ Alopochen aegyptiacus

So much fuzziness. :-) I actually wanted to go back but feared that not all of the 9 goslings might have survived … I hope they did, though. They must be huge by now. :-)
