Figura zoomorfa

Description Estatueta en forma de falcó, que representa el déu Horus amb la doble corona de l´alt i del baix Egipte. A part superior de la peça hi ha un forat, probablement per engastar-hi la major part de la corona de l´alt Egipte, que li falta. Davall les urpes del falcó hi ha un pivot o mascle amb què la peça es fixava a una peanya o a la part superior d´un bastó ritual. La figura és semblant a la representada en pedra a l´exterior del temple de Edfú, Egipte. La corona representava l´Alt i Baix Egipte, la unió dels dos regnes, la unificació d´Egipte. En iconografia està representat com una corona Blanca dins de la Vermella. Era denominada pels egipcis Sejemty "les dues poderoses".
