Polychromed Cartonnage Fragment
    Ca. 100-400 A.D.
    12" x 7-1/2".
    Polychrome section of a mummy cartonnage, this section would have covered the chest area. The center horizontal frieze displays the four sons of Horus in profile, Duamutef, the babooon-headed god, Khebsenuf, the falcon-headed deity, Anubis, the jackal-headed deity, and Amset, the humanheaded deity. These deities also personify the canopic jars containing the lungs, intestines, stomach, and liver prospectively of the deceased. Below is a partial figure of the winged deity Nut, and above are four identical figures, probably of Amset, wearing a sun-disk crown. All are outlined in black with red-ochre, blue-green, and white pigments against the yellow background. Some losses at edges and in upper left scene, two loose fragments, but colors still vibrant. Fragile, needs to be backed and framed.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
