Egyptian sculptures usually represented the ancient Egyptian gods, Pharaohs, queens and important dignitaries. They built colossal pieces, such as the Great Sphinx of Giza, and also large numbers of small carved objects, from different materials such as bronze, limestone, soapstone, quartz, basalt, hematite, alabaster and more.
Very strict conventions were followed while crafting statues: male statues were darker than the female ones; in seated statues, hands were required to be placed on knees and specific rules governed appearance of every Egyptian god. Artistic works were ranked according to their compliance with these conventions, and the conventions were followed so strictly that, over three thousand years, the appearance of statues changed very little. These conventions were intended to convey the timeless and non-aging quality of the figure's ka (spiritual double).
Sadigh Gallery has an extensive collection of authentic Egyptian statues that depict various gods and goddesses such as Horus, Anubis, Osiris, Hathor, Isis and so much more.
