Buy or Bid in this exclusive auction dedicated to ancient Egyptian mummified animals from the 18th Dynasty and the Ptolemaic Period.
Mummification was an important aspect of the ancient Egyptian religion. During the Ptolemaic and Roman periods in Egypt, the custom of leaving mummified animals as votive offerings in cult sanctuaries became extremely in vogue. At the same time, the art of decorative wrappings ascended new heights, with intricate designs being incorporated into linen folds. Mummified animals were purchased from temple priests and left by petitioners who wished special favors from a God.
