Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad, India (Double Statue) Single Block of Wood Unknown sculptor 19th century AD. - France M.No. 21-LXIV Characters from Dr. Fausts by Goethe (AD. 1808) Good - Female / Evil - Male
Today I finished two more rings to add to my small, but growing collection.
Solid Wenge wood
Sycamore + Wenge wood (probably my personal favorite combo so far)
These came together pretty nicely and I could see them being a nice his & hers set. I pretty much finished up my supply of wenge, but I will definitely be looking into more. I’m close to finishing a custom order too but didn’t want to post it until it’s all finished.
the Sun rising from the ‘Akhet’-sign (the Horizon), flanked by the Two Eyes and Shrines. Detail from the sycamore fig wood sarcophagus of the Stolist-Priest (he who performs the ritual for anointing and clothing the Cult-image of the God in His Temple) NesKhonsu; dated to the XXI Dynasty (ca. 990-940 BCE)

~Figure of a Cat.
Medium: Wood (sycamore fig), gold leaf, gesso, bronze, copper, pigment, rock crystal, glass
Place Made: Saqqara, Egypt
Date: 305 B.C.- A. D. 1st century
Period: Ptolemaic Period to Roman Period
Did this yesterday! With all the Fantastic Beasts and Potter world hype back up again, I went back into Pottermore and got myself resorted and boy, a lot of things changed! So I thought it’d be fun to do this little quick color sketch of myself with my new Pottermore sorting.
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor
Wand: 12″, Sycamore Wood, Unicorn Hair Core
Also bonus feature of my cat, Kumo as my familiar.
Origin: Ancient Egypt (Third Intermediate Period, Dynasty XXI)
Dated: c. 900–940 BCE
The kneeling, praying figure in the top-right is labeled in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs which translate to “Lord of the House of the Ruler, in order to praise(?)”.
On the left side under the falcon, the kneeling male deity boasts the “West” sign on his head, labeled in the hieroglyph for “Ba” (soul).
Below, a small sphinx is depicted and the hieroglyphic text below it (above the god Anubis) reads, “Anubis, Lord of the Cemetery, Foremost in the God’s Booth, First Lector Priest in the Place of Truth, Great God, Lord of Heaven, the Skilled One”.
The larger hieroglyphs in front of the Anubis read, “Garments and alabaster vessels, it for Osiris”.
The black-colored, couchant Anubis to the right is labeled “Input” (the female Anubis, the goddess Anput — in fact, she was the wife of Anubis) in a scrambled quasi-cryptogram. The shrine upon which Input sits is labeled “Excellent Bas”.
Chair of the king, discovered in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
In ancient Egypt the chair was a symbol of authority and prestige. […] The material used for the manufacture of the seats was wood of especially good quality imported from Lebanon or Punt (and undefined country located to the south or south-east of Egypt, which had a shoreline on the Red Sea in either Africa or Asia), or Egyptian wood like sycamore, tamarix, palm tree or acacia.
The excavators discovered six chairs and twelve stools in the antechamber and annex of Tuthankhamun’s tomb, all of them remarkable.
